Thanks for the recommendation! As owner/dj of the aforementioned Faultline "Classic" Sunday Bust, it's neat to hear some recognition once in a while. But, I hope the fans won't be disappointed with the (nominal) cover on Friday or Saturday (hey, gogo bears cost!) should they get adventurous and try another night. Thanks again for the kudos.
BEST BUSTING, HANGING, MEETING, LISTENING, WEARING AND CRUISING - 2009
Tired of the velvet ropes, the snotty attitudes (which are only a mask to cover up some kind of insecurity), the perfect hairstyles, clothes and bodies? Well, maybe not tired of the bodies. Try the Faultline Bar in Silver Lake, which holds a good, old-fashioned beer bust Sunday afternoon through evening that's fun, cost-friendly and a little wild. Bears and leather aficionados meet up with cute Silver Lake hipsters to drink cheap beers, listen to loud rock and tear up the place, while also cruising for a special friend or two. People hang out inside and outside, with a lot of guys wearing crew cuts and leather apparel. It's a different kind of scene, and there's no VIP line or cover charge. 4216 Melrose Ave., L.A. (323) 660-0889, faultlinebar.com. Sun., 2-8 p.m.—Patrick Range McDonald
