Dance Club Pick: Mayday! Mayday! 

Thursday, Apr 29 2010

Calling all fans of vintage scooters, go-go boots and spiffy retro suits, this Friday marks the beginning of Mods Mayday, when all of the above come together to ride and rock around town. Believe or not, this celebration of Quadrophenia-esque culture happens all around the world, but here on the West Coast, it's always extragroovy. There's a fleet of events next weekend (check here for info), but before that, underground fave The Bullet, now at the Hollywood Studio Bar & Grill, gets ya nice and revved up this Saturday. Live bands The Sweet Nothings (tripping out with psych and freak beats) and The New Fidelity (playing '60s covers and Stax-y originals) will get things shaking, as will DJs Go Go Guillermo, Souldshaker, Dan Electro, DJ Kev and Jason Pandora spinning '60s Motown, Northern Soul, Garage and Mod gems, all from vinyl (natch). With vintage drink prices, booth seating and a medium dance floor in the middle of the room, expect a jam both inside and out of this one. Inside the Gower Gulch, 6122 Sunset Blvd., Hlywd.; Sat., May 1, 9 p.m. www.facebook.com/thebullet.

  • Air Guitar Championship Semifinals @ The Troubadour
    The Southwest Semifinals of the US Air Guitar Championship were held last Saturday at the historic Troubadour Club in West Hollywood. The event determined who would compete as regional representatives at the 2014 National Finals in Kansas City on August 9th. The colorful contestants (many of whom opted for elaborate codpieces) were judged by comedians Kristen Schaal and the Sklar Brothers. The top score was awarded to crowd-surfing guitarist Kingslayer, the mother of a teenage son who also competed wearing little more than an American flag bathing suit. All photos by Gustavo Turner.
