Technically, this gig is being billed as “Jizzy Pearl’s Love/Hate” due to the fact that the helium-voiced frontman is the only one left from the glory days of the early ’90s, which produced such Sunset Strip classic albums as Blackout in the Red Room and Wasted in America. But fear not — Pearl does a stellar job of recreating those heady days, and the Whisky is an appropriate venue within which to wax nostalgic. In truth, Love/Hate were all too often overlooked in favor of some of the prettier rock & roll bands in Hollywood, despite them having better tunes than most. The fact that Pearl later sang for Ratt, L.A. Guns, Steven Adler and Quiet Riot (he’s still a member of the latter) shows how valued he is by other musicians.
Jizzy Pearl’s Love/Hate plays with Tennessee Werewolves, Black Star Sinners and Whiskey Dogz at 7 p.m. on Saturday, February 22 at the Whisky A Go Go.
