For those who can't get to LA Live to see the bright lights that illuminate downtown, a close-up shot of the white cube-y things. An AEG employee--not a spokesman, keep in mind, so this info could be off--tells us the lights, which are permanent and not of the rental variety, are on top of these crazy alien stands, plus there are more on the Staples Center, and some on the parking garage. So, how often will downtown be lit up like Las Vegas? Whenever there's an event at either the Staples Center or Nokia Theater, he said. Which is almost every night.
