The Verdugo HUUT! Presents: Songs of Hope, Perseverance, And/Or Drinking


Your beloved Verdugo HUUT! returns for its 20th incarnation: a tender reflection on the power of hope, perseverance or, failing those, drinking. Join L.A.'s swaggiest musicians, comedians, and storytellers for a fun show that we recommend for ages 12 and up, complete with our challenging HUUT Kahoot! during intermission for prizes and Respect.  

Esteemed performers on September 21 include Raspin Stuwart, Pierson Keating, Andrew Lasky, Fogelfoot, Heidi Mastrogiovanni, and Matt Bunsen.

Note: Despite the title, no alcohol is served at the Verdugo HUUT—only powerful coffee, conversation, and snacks.

Show begins at 7 p.m./$10 donation

Sunday Service: Living in Covenant

Minister: Rev KC Slack


We wrap our exploration of covenant with a turn towards praxis—the process by which a theory, lesson, or skill is enacted. How do we live together in covenant? What do we do to restore covenant when it is broken?

10:30 a.m.

AN EVENING with STUDEO

 


Join UUVerdugo as we welcome STUDEO, the Grammy-nominated married pop duo from Australia, as they swing through Baja and Alta California on the North American leg of their tour. Jeremy and Christine Stork deliver an entertaining evening or orioginals and covers, including the songs of Travis Dow.

When Jeremy and Christine Stork first joined forces in the late '70s, they had no idea what the future would bring, or that their union (both matrimonial and musical) would evolve into the beautiful, genre-defying mix of melody, vocals, and top-notch production which, as Studeo, ​has led to multiple single-and-EP releases, a record deal, and international acclaim​. 

Doors open at 7 p.m.

Facility Rental

UUVerdugo occupies two distinct but connected buildings in the foothills of the Verdugo Mountains. One building, which holds our 110-seat sanctuary, is a lovely meeting space built in the Craftsman style, with wooden beams and a high arched roof, along with stained glass windows and a recessed proscenium stage.

 

This stage features a Baby Grand piano and a moveable pulpit with microphone. 

 

 

On Sundays this sanctuary is home to our morning services, but that still leaves about 164 hours...

 

At other times we rent the sanctuary for concerts, recitals, candidate nights, community meetings, movie screenings, weddings, memorial services, baby dedications, plays, and other performances, including our monthly Verdugo HUUT.

 

 

UUVerdugo has WiFi and an additional sound system suitable for bands, speakers, and plays. We are also available for film shoots and recording, as our acoustics make everyone sound just a little better...

 

 

The sanctuary is connected to our Friendship Hall via a short hallway with two bathrooms. Friendship Hall offers a smaller meeting space (about 50 people) and features a full-service kitchen as well as several smaller adjoining meeting rooms.

 

We welcome all facilities rental inquiries for one-off or regular use. Please contact Outreach Coordinator Marty Barrett here.
