If you haven’t been to Jam Night on Wednesdays at Lucky Strike in Hollywood, here are some photos of what you’ve been missing. Tomorrow will be the 12th week. I haven’t made it out each week, but I’ve been to several and whenever I’ve walked in, it’s been going off! Every week is different, with new guests jumping up on stage. Not only does it feel like an actual rock scene right here in Hollywood, but it’s FREE! Lucky Strike is in Hollywood & Highland, which is convenient to the Metro Red Line. Or you can park at H&H for $2 for 2 hours with validation (as if you’ll want to leave after two hours)!
I thought Easter was the perfect time to check out Candace Frazee and Steve Lubanski’s “Bunny Museum” in Pasadena, CA. As expected, “the Hoppiest Place in the World” was very busy yesterday! Normally, reservations are required to visit this mecca of bunny memorabilia. The exception are holidays, when no advance arrangements are needed. The suggested donation is $5.
March 6, 2015 Plague Vendor at the Echo in Los Angeles, CA
I saw Plague Vendor open for Jello Biafra a little over a year ago at Alex’s in Long Beach and was blown away. I don’t know what took me to see them again, but I’m glad I caught their first headlining Echo show! Their set was completely enthralling. The whole band is great and their singer Brandon is one of the best front men I’ve seen in some time. He’s got raw energy and charisma on lock down!
If you’re heading to Desert Daze at the beginning of May, make sure to check out their set. In June, they’ll be heading on tour with Bad Religion!
Plague Vendor are: Brandon Blaine: Vocals, Michael Perez: Bass, Jay Rogers: Guitar and Luke Perine: Drums
