What’s Kensington All About?
Kensington Presents started as an intimate series of concerts on our porch in Echo Park, and has grown into a performance series at non-traditional and established venues including The Viaduct, The York Manor, Resident and other spaces in and around LA - both indoors and out! The programming is still an eclectic mix and the crowds are still intimate. Mostly, we just wanted to activate more of the city and invite a few (thousand) more of our friends!
