Win invitations to the launch party for "Van Halen Rising: How a Southern California Backyard Party Band Saved Heavy Metal!"
Before they were famous, Van Halen performed at every small hall and dive bar across the city of Los Angeles. To celebrate that legacy -- and the release of Van Halen Rising --
There is a full night of music and fun in the works, including a performance by the fantastic Van Halen tribute band, Fan Halen. That night, they'll be taking us back to Van Halen's early days by blasting through the setlist Van Halen performed on their 1978 World Tour.
After Fan Halen finishes, some legendary San Gabriel Valley rock musicians will take the stage until last call, playing tunes that helped make the seventies hard rock's greatest era.
All the while, author Greg Renoff be around to sign books
