Captive parking. $12.00. Considering most L.A. parking fees are pretty reasonable, even the Chandler Pavilion UCLA has a lot of nerve charging for that charge for parking off-hours in what is largely an empty lot.Tune-In Festival L.A.: eighth blackbird travel • Mar 31 2014 star this tip starred

Colorful composer/bandleader Goran Bregovic makes a triumphant return to Royce Hall performing his unique brand of eclectic, up-tempo Balkan Brass backed by an eclectic nine-piece ensemble that constitutes the core of his acclaimed Wedding and Funeral Orchestra.
Bregovic and his epic Wedding and Funeral Orchestra made their West Coast debut at Royce Hall in 2009, performing to packed-house audiences in two thunderous evenings of music that the Los Angeles Times called “part celebratory and part spellbindingly soulful.”
“Champagne for Gypsies,” the group’s 2012 album, is described as a musical reaction to the pressure and backlash against Gypsies (Roma) across Europe. Goran’s highly collaborative approach again comes to the fore with special guests as varied as France’s Gypsy Kings, Eugene Hütz of Gogol Bordello, Florin Salam, singer of Romania’s traditional manele music, and Swiss singer Stéphane Eicher.
Born in Sarajevo to a Serbian mother and Croatian father, Bregovic has been a musical cross-pollinator and creative iconoclast since forming his first rock band, White Buttons, during the Communist era of the former Yugoslavia. His first international splash came when he scored the 1989 Cannes award-winning film “Time of the Gypsies” directed by Emir Kusturica. Based in Paris since 1992, Bregovic continues to strike a distinctly original path with film scores, concerts and recordings.
