New Classic LA is a website about LA’s best and most interesting new avant-garde/experimental/progressive music. It is a project of Equal Sound.

This website was built by Nick Norton in 2010. He ran it until 2023, when Richard An took over as Editor In Chief.

For our event calendar, there’s a submission link on the calendar page. Please also make it clear that you’ve at least had a look at the site. Beethoven and Bach are phenomenal composers, but that’s not what we’re focused on here.

If you’re up for helping out financially (i.e. supporting the domain name, server space, our time and effort), we have a Patreon for that exact purpose. It’s at Thanks!
