On October 26, CityWalk jumpstarts the fall "Plugged In" concert series with a free 7:30 p.m. performance by Neon Trees.  Their highly-popular debut album "Habits," which includes the #1 hit single "Animal," has quickly skyrocketed their popularity and made them one of 2010's biggest breakthrough artists.  As part of the event, fans will be able to purchase the CD and have it signed at a meet-and-greet following the performance.

Their performance coincides with Hard Rock Cafe's annual month-long campaign for breast cancer awareness, "PINKTOBER™," whereby the band will autograph a pink guitar for a silent auction that evening at the Hard Rock Cafe with proceeds benefiting the cause.  

Pop-punk rockers Good Charlotte will rock the new CityWalk stage on Thursday, November 4 at 7:30 p.m. in celebration of "Cardiology", the band's first album release in nearly four years.  Good Charlotte was founded in 1996 by identical brothers Joel and Benji Madden. The band shot to stardom with such hits off that disc as "The Little Things" and "Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous." Following the massive success of "Young and the Hopeless," Good Charlotte released two additional hit CDs, 2004's "The Chronicles of Life and Death" in 2004 and "Good Morning Revival" in 2007.

Additional free  "Plugged In" concerts will include performances by such popular locals bands as "Saint Motel," "Red Cortez" and "Voxhaul Broadcast" during the L.A. Weekly LA Weelly's 101 Experience on Sunday, November 7 starting at 3:00 p.m. on the new CityWalk outdoor stage.
