FROM THIS EPISODE

The Greek Theatre in LA’s Los Feliz neighborhood is a historic icon that makes big money for the City of Los Angeles. August was its busiest month in more than a decade. Now, two entertainment behemoths are battling for the contract to run it. What’s best for concert-goers, the city—and for the neighborhood?

Also tonight, the Los Angeles Times claims the Orange County Register owes it $3.5 million… and the Times wants its money.

Who’s Really In Charge at LA’s Greek Theatre? 18 MIN, 11 SEC

In August, LA’s Greek Theatre staged 21 concerts—more than Staples Center, the Forum, Nokia Theater and the Hollywood Palladium combined. But a more important performance may be coming on Thursday as LA City’s Board of Recreation and Parks Commission decides who should run the venue for the next 20 years. Two of the world’s biggest promoters have filed reports running thousands of pages.

For the OC Register, It's One Snafu After Another 6 MIN, 17 SEC

Last weekend, the Orange County Register failed to appear on the doorsteps of subscribers, and the paper was swamped by “tens of thousands of phone calls, hundreds of angry Facebook posts and untold emails.” That’s according to Gustavo Arellano, Editor of the OC Weekly. He also writes what he calls, “The OC Register Death Watch”.
