Based in a former 1930s warehouse, this brick-walled performance space hosts music, theater, dance and film events in a medium-size theater, which is adjoined by a more bare-bones bar, where indie-rock musicians are booked by the local promoters the Fold. Broken Bells, Joseph Arthur, Joan as Police Woman, the Living Sisters, David Kilgour, LA Font, Cass McCombs, Nicole Eva Emery, Funeral Party, Dan Stuart, Light FM and many other local and international musicians have ensconced themselves in the Bootleg. The beer and wine bar specializes in such bottled beers as La Fin du Monde and Delirium Tremens, alongside tap favorites like Manifesto and Golden Chaos. There's an outdoor patio in the back, surrounded by brick walls decorated with bright murals, where folks can get a breath of fresh air between sets. Shows are generally 21 & over. Street parking.

Event Review: Going Green the Wong Way
Kristina Wong Sort of Saves the World -- Originally published but removed and pre-empted by someone I suppose is considered more important than I, your humble art critic (see above). Mine's funnier. Enjoy!
Originally produced by Mad Cat Theatre Company in Miami, and on its way to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival later this year, performance artist, writer, and unsettling provacateuse Kristina Wong’s newest one-woman freak-out, Going Green the Wong Way, makes a stop here at home for three weeks at the Bootleg Theater. An “eco-comedy” for a new generation of frazzled hipsters trying hard to be responsible environmentalists, the show features Wong’s trademark character studies and knack for hilarious and harrowing story-telling. Not one to shy away from self-deprecation or slinging cultural zingers, her lampooning of stereotypes can make the audiences uncomfortable in a delightfully thorny, Andy Kaufman kind of way. Her lively stage presence and groan-inducing honesty makes a meandering tale of woe -- love among the recycling bins, exploding veggie-powered pink Mercedes sedans, science-nerd adolescence -- into a guffaw-inducing, relatable story of how hard it can be to do the right thing and how important it is to keep trying anyway.
