The Sunset Strip Throws Itself a Three-Night Party
By Lisa Brenner
Six sexy clubs on the rockin'-est strip of Sunset Boulevard open their doors tonight for a three-day festival aimed at preserving the indulgent, influential and important musical legacy of L.A.'s Sunset Strip.
Friday and Saturday boast back-to-back action up and down the WeHo corridor. You can't pick a bad show or venue on either night, but make sure to catch sets by The 88, The Deadly Syndrome and Juliette & The Licks.
Also on Saturday, there will be "an exclusive panel discussion" at the new and shiny London West Hollywood Hotel, moderated by CNN's Larry King. Be there as his majesty interrogates the "Godfathers" in front of an audience of music moguls, industry mouthpieces and, we're hoping, groupies.
Go for the glory. Stay for the gridlock.
