Closing downtown Los Angeles streets for the Jay Z–curated Made in America festival in August caused no end of City Hall criticism, especially from the area's councilman, Jose Huizar.

This time Huizar's on board: Steve Aoki, the SoCal-bred superstar DJ who co-headlined that event, is doing a free solo show, “LAoki,” Saturday, May 16, on Broadway.

Mayor Eric Garcetti, a fan who tapped Aoki to perform during his campaign for City Hall's top office, helped to mastermind the concert. Garcetti and Aoki had a meeting at the mayor's office March 3.
