On the corner of Lincoln Blvd and Venice Blvd Starving For Gravity an ROCK band based in Los Angeles rocked the intersection to the runners and spectators delight with their music during the running of 13.1 Marathon® LA. They rocked out the longest of any band and drew the largest crowd.
You just might find me at their next show. My favorite song of theirs is “Stars Don’t Shine.” Check out their myspace or facebook page.
