The El Portal is a beautiful 360 seat theatre in NoHo - a historic landmark in the San Fernando Valley, just minutes from Universal Studios, Warner Brothers, Disney, ABC, CBS-Radford and NBC. The theatre was originally built as a vaudeville house in 1926. Today it sits across from the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences and the Art Institute of California.

The El Portal Theatre lobbies boast luscious carpeting secured in 2004 from the now demised Los Angeles Shubert Theatre and comfortable new seats from the WGA (Writers Guild of America) in 2010.
Want To Perform?
NOTE - performance applications ended on 1/1/2019. We announced the performers within our private Facebook group, and on the poster that you can download from this page.

Note that solo acoustic performances are the norm, and make up 90% of the event. Here are the typical performance types that work in our fast-paced show:
  • Play the acoustic guitar / play and sing
  • Play the piano / Play the piano and sing
  • Small acoustic duo or trio max (no setup or amps needed)

Our events allocate exactly 5 minutes maximum for each act. So your setup must be QUICK and PAINLESS! We have a fast-paced show. The idea is to present your spirit and your art in its purest form.

What if you don’t perform?
We have lyricists and writers in the Indie Collaborative who are not performers, but they can still get use their 5 minutes to tell the crowd what they do, and what they’re looking for! You can play a short piece from your phone into the mic if you feel that it’s necessary.

More Tech Stuff
We cannot play videos or backing tracks.
There is a grand piano, which will be tuned before the event

Refund Policy
Due to the high cost of putting on these events, we cannot give refunds. In the past we’ve had people who didn’t get a performance slot request a refund. This is not possible. You should want to come in order to be a part of a magical evening of friendship, camaraderie, music and plain old fun, whether you perform or not.
