VIPER ROOM

8852 Sunset Blvd., West Hollywood, CA 90069,
(310)358-1881, www.viperroom.com

 

Those who’ve never visited the Viper Room before will
find it surprisingly cozy, holding only 250 people, styled in the fashion of Harlem's great jazz clubs of the 1920's.
 This gives music fans the opportunity to see national headlining artists
that sell out arenas perform in an intimate environment (along with surprise big-name
performances and special guest appearances). Since opening in 1993, the Viper has hosted everyone from Johnny Cash and
Tom Petty to Stone Temple Pilots and Oasis and is truly part of Sunset Strip folklore.

This 500 capacity

Crue, Guns ‘n Roses and Papa Roach their start. For each new generation of music there have always been new bands that were
discovered at the Whisky A Go-Go. Typically

punk and even Motown acts over the years. The venue has two levels, with a bar on each and tables and chairs upstairs.

WILTERN LG

3790 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles
CA 90010
, (213) 388-1400, www.thewiltern.com

 

Both a world-class concert hall and an architectural
treasure, The Wiltern LG – ornate, opulent and beautifully renovated – looks like
a theatre should. One of the most evocative
and intimate concert venues in the West Coast, it has a long and storied past. Built as a grand movie theater in 1931 its interior
is one of the best examples of art deco remaining in Southern
California
and is listed historical and cultural landmark. In 2002 The Wiltern LG received a multi-million
dollar transformation and was reopened with a jaw-dropping line-up of concerts,
including the Rolling Stones and a three-night residency by Bob Dylan.

LiveNation.com. Tickets also available
at all Ticketmaster outlets including Tower Records, Robinsons May, Ritmo Latino
