Fireworks Meets Punk Rock

Old Skars and Upstarts tour featuring Anti-Nowhere league will be celebrating the Fourth of July with us tonight! It is a day of barbecues, hang time, and some serious punk rock! Tickets will be available at the door, so come have a drink with us. It doesn’t get any more patriotic than the American legacy that is, The Sunset Strip!

Power To The Peoples

Dave Barnes (look for him when he hits the road with the ever cool, Jonny Lang), Starbucks artist Hilary McRae, and my local homie Curtis Peoples are gearing up to bring some great tunes to the stage tomorrow. Strong buzz on all these artists – so do yourself a favor, so you can be one of those cool kids that is able to say “oh ya…i saw them way back when…”

This Is Not a Joke

Rumor has it, their are still a few tickets left for the LAST two Russell Brand comedy shows. We know you might think we’re joking…as shows kept getting added – but we happen to know Russell is heading back over the pond to work on a few more movies so this is in fact your last chance to see his comedy show! Don’t be lame – come see it. How funny was Forgetting Sarah Marshall?? Click here for tickets!

Farewell To Freddy

The month of Camp Freddy Mayhem has become this Rock N Roll machine that has been the talk of the town! It’s taken over like no one could have ever imagined. It started off great as we were so excited to be able to hold one of our Roxy contests to find the lucky openers – which allowed local bands to actually warm up the stage for Freddy. What a great opportunity. And now, we’ve had FIVE sold out shows – countless special guests – and killer set lists. Over the past 4 weeks, we’ve seen Tommy Lee, Terry Nunn, Chester of Linkin Park, Brandon Boyd of Incubus, Chino of the Deftones, Jerry Cantrell, Lemmy Kilmister, B-Real and Sen Dog, Tiffany, Metal Skool, Cory from Slipknot/Stone Sour, Tom Morrello as well as our house favorite Mark McGrath – to name a few! On top of the Sex Pistols Paul Cook, Glen Matlock and Steve Jones and GnR legends Duff and Slash! Insanity. We hate to rub it in, because the Freddy Finale tonight is of course sold out – but for the lucky, this show will take the cake! Every Thursday the chaos starts early – so make sure you stay tuned as Nic and I twitter the day away. We’ll keep you updated as always, on all the nitty gritty secrets. Thanks to all the guests and the guys – as well as the fans who have made the Roxy their nightlife staple for the month. We hope to see you all soon.

Foxboro Hot Tubs Live at The Roxy

Last night’s show with Foxboro Hot Tubs was nothing short of amazing! Billie Joe has one of the most classic voices in punk rock history and it was such a treat to have him on our stage. We’de like to thank all the dedicated fans who braved the Sunset Strip for hours and hours yesterday.

From the laist:
“I’ve never seen so many people dancing on stage throughout a band’s set,” described LAist News Editor Andy Sternberg, who went to the Foxboro Hot Tubs’ show at the Roxy last night. “Billy Joe was loving it.”
