The Five Star Bar prides itself on creating a community of bands and fans working together to keep our wonderful little piece of the LA music landscaper thriving. We respect you so please show us the same. We are a laid back venue but we won’t accept any attitudes that conflict with everyone having a great time. If you have a problem and can discuss it like an adult then we’re able to have a conversation. If not then you’ll be kindly removed from the building. BOOKING If you want to play here then the first thing to do is come down to the venue and introduce yourself. We’re more apt to book your band if we know you. Come support the venue, the other bands, the scene. That’s what we’re all about. Sure we have to make money to keep the doors open and bands coming back but more important is the sense of community. So visit the venue and check us out before you send me music or a pitch for a residency. Remember it has to make sense for both of us. If your band is interested in playing on a end of week event we simply ask that you show some sort of prior show that you can draw a minimum of 25 people paid to see your band. It’s simple really – we all need to work together and we need people through the door to pay you and the club itself or we have nothing.

We are now accepting bookings for the back room at five star bar, 400 plus capacity Pro PA and mix, with stage and lighting. SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY. 3234284492.

WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR LOST OR STOLEN EQUIPMENT!! PROMOTION We don’t believe in pay to play but simple and strong promoting the old fashioned way. Some ideas: – Print out flyers and hand out to your friends – Invite friends to the event page on Facebook  & repost repost repost to all your social media channels – Put up posters around town (legal places that you have asked permission of course) – Put up a poster in the front window of the bar (arrange with bar manager) We try to keep the door fee low. It’s usually around $5 but sometimes larger shows require a little higher fee. I’m sure you understand that in order to bring you top talent we need to be able to pay. We will consider all styles of music including punk, reggae, alternative, country, hardcore, emo, punk, indie, pop, acoustic, spoken word, etc. We book try to 4-6 bands a night with 30 to 45 minute sets with 15 minute changeovers. Shows typically start around 8 or 9PM and end at 1:45AM. We have a full sound system including 18 channel mixing board, plenty of mics and 3 monitors (2 front and 1 drum) The stage is 12’x18′. Flyer Rules All bands are responsible for making their own flyers and take full responsibility of the following rules: 1. NO PROFANITY 2. NO SEXUAL CONNOTATIONS 3. NO SLANDEROUS WORDS OR PICTURES 3. DO NOT POST ON STREET LIGHTS, TELEPHONE POLES, ANY PUBLIC BUILDINGS, CAR WINDSHIELDS, BUS STOPS 4. DO NOT HAND OUT FLYERS IN FRONT OF CLUB DAY OF SHOW 5. GET APPROVAL OF PROPRIETOR OR PRINCIPAL TO POST ON BULLETIN BOARDS, WINDOWS, COUNTER-TOPS OR AT SCHOOLS

  2. hello name is Jason. I play in a band out of Austin Texas called unknown relatives. We’re going on tour this feb./ mar. And we woul love to book a show at star bar on 3/8..i actually grew up in Los Angeles and still have alot of friends there. We could probably bring at least 20 people is a link to our first record we will be touring in support of. Thank you! Looking forward to hearing from you.

    January 3, 2013 at 10:10 am

    • Hi Jason, my name is Sara Wexler and I play in a band called Lion’s Mouth, a headstrong indie-pop duo based in Los Angeles. You can check out our music here: I checked out your music and really liked it. We would like to open for you guys if you are in need of local support on your tour to LA. Please feel free to contact me if you are interested in putting a show together in February or March. I look forward to hearing from you. Best, Sara Wexler

    Hey guys, I will admit right off the bat, that you may not know me well, but I would definitely like to come to your bar and discuss a few things. I have been trying to host a residency for March, I always have a couple of bands that I know for a fact have a great draw, but it’s SO HARD in L.A. to find a venue that’s not so snobby and willing to at least discuss the opportunity. I love that community is big with you guys because I’m feeling like an outsider! haha. I see March 6,13, and 20 are all free, so I figured maybe a wednesday residency. I’m typically easy-going and friendly, but I’m a stickler for planning and executing a show.

    Who is the owner or booking agent of the bar? I’m thinking of dropping by next week, I’m willing to have a pint, discuss what I want to plan, and get to know everyone. What’s typically a good time to come? Normally, I wouldn’t be so abrupt, but the bands whom I have contacted back in December want to know the dates, but every venue is email-only and they never really care whether they get back to you or not.

    January 25, 2013 at 4:52 pm

  4. Kareem John

    I know you hate residencies, but If you happen to change your mind about the residency thing perhaps we could do it either sundays in March (6, 10, 17) Wednesdays in March (6, 13, 20), Saturdays in April (6, 13, 20), or Wednesdays in April (3,10, 17), Just three shows. Otherwise, I would like to book my band, Danger Junkies for March 23 along with a couple others if possible.

    February 2, 2013 at 2:39 pm

  5. I’m seeking a date at Five Star in LA for alt-folk duo The Bengsons.

    Please let me know if you have anything available for them on March 12.

    The Bengsons have toured the US extensively and they are in the process of presenting their rock-opera “Hundred Days” with Z Space in San Francisco in 2013. The NY Times says of The Bengsons, “not only a tremendous musical talent, but a raw honesty, a sincere righteousness.”

    For more on The Bengsons:

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    We are looking to play in October.

  19. Hey, Our Band COW has been gigging pretty steadily on the westside, but we’d like to head your way in hopes of introducing ourselves to the local scene out there. We joined a friend attending an EyeHateGod show at your venue, and I was really impressed with the bar. It seemed like real music heads actually hang out there regularly – unlike out here in Venice/Santa Monica. I’ve also spoken to some bands (Child, Divola, Massenger) that we’ve played with who said they really enjoyed playing at the 5 Star Bar. Anyway, we’d really appreciate it if you could try and include us on an upcoming bill. We play a slow, dark kind of indie rock that has a heavy leaning towards Grunge music and occasionally breaks into punk and metal. Please let us know if you think of a good night for us to come out and play. If you could fit us into any of those November dates, the sooner the better. But we are also Available in December as well. Any help is appreciated.
    Thanks a lot, Conor.

  20. Hello my name is Edgar Meda, First things first, thanks for the awesome shows at the fivestar been going there for a while now, always a pleasure. Now, I am looking for open dates at your club for February, surely I am planning on attending a show coming up and hopefully I could speak with you in person. Well, I am organizing a indie/psychadelic show for February, dates such as 7 or 8. around 5-6 bands, mostly just 5. I love to work with new people because it makes it fun and better. If those dates are open and I am able to lock a show with you I can surely and of course will meet you in person to discuss further details and my past experiances.
    Thank you for you time.

  22. My name is Christopher Nunn and I am a southern California based Singer-Songwriter originally from NW Washington state (Bellingham to be exact). While my music has influences from Folk to Rock to Blues to World genres a la Jimmy Page, it holds true to that Pacific Northwest style of songwriting.

    Do you have any availability in the near future to accommodate a solo performance? I would be happy to open for an existing show or to take a whole night and fill it with local support.

    Highlights for this project and past ones include:

    – opening for Mike Watt, The Devil Makes Three (at SXSW), No Means No, and Dead Moon
    – being featured on KEXP (Seattle) and receiving Bellingham’s “best band” award from WhatsUp! magazine
    – performing at The Subdued String Band Jamboree in front of over a thousand people
    – performing at Carnegie Hall w/ Charlie Hayden

    As a Berklee College attendee, I aim to bring the utmost professionalism to each show and plan to apply that to my promotional efforts as well. Links for your consideration:

    we are a band called TE ADORO and we were looking to play a show sometime in September, preferably around the 18th!! Our band has been supporting your venue for a while now (black mambas, thee commons) and now want a chance at the stage! We would love to play with other like minded musicians, we play Latin psychedelic rock, giving a unique and eerily nostalgic energy to whatever setting we are put in. We are a rhythm band that look to our roots for inspiration. We have our own equipment and are super responsible and just want to look to play in front of locals! We have a couple of shows that have drawn crowds in and know lots of local bands that would love to come and support!!
    Once again if September of the 18th doesn’t work for you please let us know!!

    Hello ,

    My name is Tere and I have a band, Walk to Heirloom that would be interested in playing a show any day of the week. The band is just looking for exposure and most importantly they want to have fun.They are all professional musicians who are passionate about music and sharing it with everyone. The band is not looking to get paid, just looking for exposure and we think your venue is awesome. The band would love the opportunity to perform a set.

    Walk to Heirloom

    Based out of Covina, Ca, Walk to Heirloom is a soft melodic, 5 piece rock band with
    plenty of musical layers, underlying tones, haunting harmonies, and deep meaningful
    content. Influences of Fleetwood Mac, Adele, and Tori Amos blend to create a vibe you
    won’t soon forget.


    Thank You for your consideration and we look forward to hearing from you guys!

  95. Hello,

    My name is Joey I’m with a band called UNDERHANDER. We’ve played your venue a few times, once during a battle of the bands a few years back and another time was a regular event. We always dug the venue and the vibe has always been great. Since our last show there we’ve recorded an album produced & recorded by Billy Grazaidei of BIOHAZARD. We’ve been releasing singles videos working on building a base. We’d like to see if you could do one of the October dates 8th or 10th ? Thursday we feel we can get some people out to pay $5 at the door to see us perform the songs from the album.
