How can I pay the bills in LA in the meantime?

I am in the last semester of my undergraduate years, and am facing the prospect of 'real life' in a few months. I live in Los Angeles and am planning on pursuing music and screenwriting as a career, but obviously will need to work to support myself while I pursue these unlikely options. I am wondering what suggestions people have as to what jobs would pay a living wage relatively quickly without much experience...[more inside]

I am looking at bartending/wating tables but have no experience in either field (other than some catering work I did) and am not certain at all how hard it is to get a job like this without any resume to speak of. I will be graduating with a B.A. in Poitical Science, but don't like the idea of going to law school. Any help on what jobs to work during the interim period of my life would be much appreciated, along with tips/advice on how to obtain a bartending (or similar) job (for instance, do those bartending schools do anything for you?). Thanks in advance...
