The Novo by Microsoft is a pretty bad ass, mid-size concert venue in the L.A . Live complex in downtown LA. Enter by going up the escalator (next to RockN'Fish), to the 3rd floor. Its approximate 2000 capacity is divided up by a decent sized open, standing room “floor" (with a few different mini levels) and upper level fixed seating. Shows range from OMG awesome concerts, to comedy to, wtf? You can also buy tickets for The Novo shows at Ameoba and STAPLES Center Box Office.
