One of Los Angeles' longest running residencies is coming to a close. Low End Theory has announced that it will wrap up it's weekly run at The Airliner in Lincoln Heights starting tonight, and finishing things off on Wednesday, August 8. That's ten opportunities for fans of one of Los Angeles' most unique nights of music to say goodbye.
In the past, Low End Theory has hosted a variety of live acts and DJs, including Erykah Badu, Crystal Castles, Daedelus, Flying Lotus, Nosaj Thing, School of Seven Bells, Amon Tobin, Tokimonsta, Thom Yorke (of Radiohead), as well as resident DJs Daddy Kev, Gaslamp Killer, and DJ Nobody. Low End Theory took place every Wednesday night at The Airliner since it's start in 2006, with offshoots taking place in other cities, from San Francisco to Tokyo. There was also several Low End Theory festivals that took place over the course of it's lifespan at Echoplex and Shrine Expo Hall.

What a long strange trip it's been. First and foremost, the residents of Low End Theory would like to offer our sincerest gratitude for the nearly 12 years of support. It has been an honor and privilege to serve in the capacity we have, rocking over 600 Wednesdays at the Airliner in Lincoln Heights, as well as various tours and spot dates across the US, Asia, Europe and Africa. To every artist who has blessed our stage, we are grateful. To every person who has joined us on the dancefloor, you are the primary source of inspiration for making Low End Theory happen every Wednesday since October 2006.
The journey has not been without its challenges. It is therefore with a sense of sadness that we are announcing our last ten shows, starting tonight at the Airliner in Lincoln Heights, with the final Low End Theory planned for August 8. There are several factors affecting this decision. Family obligations. Work demands. Life. The general consensus amongst the residents is that we have overstayed our welcome, and our greatest hope now is that the final ten weeks of Low End Theory can serve as a time for the beat community to set aside our differences, come together, and hopefully remember what made Low End Theory a special place to begin with: the music.
Very truly yours,
