The Bradbury Building has starred in many films -- it was famously featured in "Blade Runner" and, more recently, it played Kinograph Studios in "The Artist" -- but the 1893-built wonder doesn't regularly serve as a cultural venue or a home to concerts and gigs.
You're more likely to see a handful of reverential tourists (and, let's be honest, gaga-eyed locals) inside the Bradbury, staring up at all of its stairs and its whimsical elevator and its great Victorian glass roof. But a concert in the five-story architectural superstar? Not happening.
That "not happening" will be reversed, however, on Saturday, March 3 when the Da Camera Society presents Trio Mediæval. The singers will be inside the fantastical building performing "medieval and contemporary songs." Is this a pre-chill situation? Are you thinking about standing in the landmark and hearing centuries-old songs? Totally pre-chills.
Tickets are $39 and $43.
We're thinking about the acoustics of the Bradbury now. We believe the tiles will amplify and project in a satisfying and stirring manner. Plus, the simple act of being in one of filmdom's greatest, real-life sets, hearing moving music, indeed tempts.
Get to the concert before you see the Bradbury on screen again and think "wow, I could have heard music in that storybook space."
