It’s a pretty fabulous week here at The Roxy as we celebrate the 35th anniversary of the club! Through the years, we’ve opened our doors to the ordinary and the extraordinary. From legendary tours from Springsteen to the Jonas Brothers – comedy runs from Cheech and Chong to Russell Brand – and stage productions from Rocky Horror Picture Show to Hedwig and the Angry Inch – we’ve seen it all! Theirs to many bands and artists, crew members, team mates, and wise ones to thank – but know that we are so thankful for all the wonderful people who have graced our stage both in front and behind the curtain over the years. We all have so many epic stories and tales and are working hard everyday to create more memories. Feel free to talk about your favorite show, most amazing experience, or re-count those nights that you can’t – quite – remember – we are proud to admit, we have plenty of those too! Here’s to another 35!
Some of the coolest dance tunes in town, HyperCrush is stopping in to show the Roxy some love and we are ready to bust out the neon and raybans for a night of shakin’ it. Paired with our friends at MetroMix and the lovely Sicky Dicky crew – we can’t wait for Saturday! Click here for tickets and make sure to come early to check out the full lineup!

Like a scene out of the latest gossip rag, Ronson (and crew) tore it up at The Roxy on Friday! Always a fan of the DJ scene – Samantha Ronson showed us why she’s on top of her game!
Thanks, as always to the lovely EV for the sweet pics.
Just a heads up that TWO new show’s are going on sale…and it’s quite an eclectic mix. Hopefully one of ’em will tickle your fancy. Mickey Avalon regulars ANDRE LEGACY,DIRT NASTY,BEARDO will be taking the stage August 15th so make sure to get your tickets! Secondly, legendary Raphael Saadiq will bring the funk shortly after on August 17 – can’t wait see see him live, as its always something new and innovative! Tickets for both shows can be found by clicking here or calling us at 310 278 9457!
Just wanted to put those little hearts and heads at ease – we DO indeed have two (REALLY GREAT AMAZING) shows next Friday July 18th. This isn’t a mistake or a typo. It’s an eclectic mix, and that’s why the Roxy rox. We can transform from Pop to Hip Hop seamlessly. So, to reiterate – Doors for Radio Disney Presents: DEMI LOVATO are at 7:00pm. Doors for Myspace Music Presents: NAS are at 10:30pm.
June Boom! The Sunset Strip was on fire this month. SSMF, Crystal Castles sold-out midnight show, TRVS+DJAM w/ Too Short and (last but not least)the return of Shuvel, all made June a hit. Coming off of May, we worried if we would be able to keep the great photos coming. We were not dissapointed. Great job everyone! A Special “what up!” goes out imnotuna, Never Cool in School, totallylikeduh! and letsflyawaythistime, all who are contributing members of The Roxy Theatre Flickr Group. Nice work, keep it coming. If you want to shoot at The Roxy contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will try to accommodate you the best we can. Thanks again to everyone who added over 1000 shots to the group this month. Hit us with your best shot! Fire Away!!!

If their ever was a hybrid all-star team…superstar DJ, DJ AM and epic drummer Travis Barker who have joined to collectively become TRVSDJ-AM – are IT. Everyone is taking notice of the brewing residency, including the LA Times. Come check it out – tickets here or 310 278 9457.
“The star turntablist and the former Blink-182 drummer have been doing their scratch ‘n’ bash for few years now, popping up at clubs around the country and attracting guest turns from the likes of Too $hort, Paul Wall, Fabolous and Lil’ Jon. L.A. being their home base, they’re expecting the roster of drop-ins to expand considerably.
DJ AM is tight-lipped on their identities, but says he’s expecting some “beyond-legends that I’m amazed I’m going to get to share the stage with…. We both have a lot of friends who are musicians who are gonna be around, so we’re just gonna kind of wing it and see how it goes. Whoever comes, just put ‘em on blast, basically, and throw ‘em onstage.”
We’re still recovering from the Crytsal Castles mania – and apparently MTV is too!
Check out the review of the show!
Laws of economics (stay with me here) state that scarcity creates value, and Crystal Castles’ anonymity as the anti-rockstars only made me desperately want to know everything about them. You’ll be hard-pressed to find clear photos of either member, they shoot down any suggestions of fame, and they always understate their own popularity.
But on the other hand, they did add another Roxy show two nights later due to overwhelming demand, and they are also the newest group to enter the ring up against the big record labels. You can find a full quality, fully tagged and fully free mp3 of “Crimewave” for download on Nine Inch Nails’ Web site. After my encounter with Crystal Castles, it’s clear that they’re a shining example of a band that is truly in it for the music. Expect much more from Crystal Castles in the upcoming months, because whether they like it or not, they’re going to be huge.
Over the last couple weeks we have been spoiled by Dim Mak and Company. A MSTRKRFT video shoot with with Nore, LA Riots, Felix Cartal, Lazaro Casanova and Steve Aoki. Couple days later Aoki Played The Elements of Life Benefit. Then Crystal Castles came in and basically took over the club. Every email, comment and phone call we received over the last week was about them. So many that we were forced to add a Friday Midnight performance. Both shows were completely sold out. We can’t wait to have them back. It felt as we are starting to witness a change in the music scene and we love it. Check out some of the vids and pics the captured the fun over the last month.
Thanks to the guys at Club Soda Media, Darren Kim and Erik Voake for the pics.

I think the only thing left to say…is see you tomorrow at our MIDNIGHT Crystal Castles show!!

Also, stay tuned as we post some of our favorite contest entries- almost time to get your vote on! And if you haven’t submitted yet, what are you waiting for!
As always, thanks to our house photog Erik Voake for capturing the moment
Crystal Castles is getting ready to take over the Roxy and we’re very excited! They are kicking off the first sold out show tonight – and we were happy to announce earlier in the week that a SECOND show had been added for Friday. We can’t encourage you enough to get tickets SOON – thru the box office at 310 278 9457. Also, so far we’re gotten some amazing contest entries – and remember, the lucky winners will really do it up in style at Friday’s show (check out the details here)! Show us what you’ve got!

For all of you who called us crying and begging for tickets…your dignity has been restored. A SECOND Crystal Castles show has been added at MIDNIGHT on Friday 6/13 – brought to you by our friends at HARD and DIM MAK! It’s going to be amazing… obviously. So try not to be so slow, and get your tickets FAST. For now, tickets will only be available thru the Roxy box office, so call us soon and join the party. You can reach us at 310 278 9457! See you then!
We were just as bummed as you all were when the original Crystal Castles show was postponed – but we can’t be happier to have them here June 11th. They have DJ’d their way into our hearts and we know this show is going to be amazing. Obviously you know that too, as the show is sold out. And a reminder, if you held on to your original tickets from March – we can’t wait to see you! Those tickets will be carried over, no problemo.
Now that we have started our own Flickr group, The Roxy Theatre, anyone can add their photos taken at The Roxy or On The Rox to share with the world. So far we have received over 1500 photos from over 100 members. At the beginning of each month we will post our favorites in our “Shots From The Top” post. Keep shooting and post often, thanks to all who contributed.
