It's a great venue if you are allowed to utilize most of the Bowl signature perks such as bringing your own food and alcohol in which typically is not allowed for all or most of the "leased events" that are not brought to you by the LA Phil. But I have noticed they still allow some of those perks at leased events for a lot of the less mainstream indie rock gigs with a triple bill. It's not by any means the best concert venue in LA but it's quite a spectacle on a warm spring/summer night with your favorite bottle of wine or favorite beer and some takeout.
FYI - a little birdie told me that they may start doing random DUI checkpoints a couple blocks down each side of Highland exiting the Bowl during shows so be careful... Your best bet is to park at a lot or neighborhood a little farther away to avoid the mess.
