A Selective Guide to the Arts in Los Angeles

stevemillerWho doesn’t know “The Joker” and “Fly Like an Eagle”? If you listen to classic rock radio or are one of the 18 million people who own the Steve Miller Band’s “Greatest Hits” album, you are probably already singing along. Why not do it with the band on Thursday, Oct. 22, or Friday, Oct. 23 (at 8 p.m.) at the University of Southern California’s Bovard Auditorium? The venue is pretty intimate and the tickets are totally affordable ($35-$75, and $250 VIP), plus the concerts benefit the USC Thornton School of Music, which is celebrating its 125th anniversary with 125 concerts and events, many of which are free. Bovard Auditorium, 3551 Trousdale Parkway, LA 90089, (213) 740-4672, www.uscticketoffice.com.
