West Coast concert picks: Billy Idol will perform at Above Ground

Not much burning in L.A. for the upcoming days: this week has to be the quietest week since the reopening of the clubs. Of course,  it’s expected because it’s Christmas week but some shows were also canceled due to a new surge of the virus. We will see how all this will work out after the holidays. There are nevertheless two noteworthy charity events among these concert picks: Above Ground at the Fonda benefitting MusiCares, and the Annual .Paak House, organized by Anderson .Paak at Oxnard College Park.
