The international sensations The Parlotones are hitting Los Angeles on November 4 and they want you to be the opening act.
Visit thrillcall.com & submit your band once a day to be chosen. Have you friends submit, tell them you’re band is the one that needs this amazing opportunity!
The Parlotones have just three full length albums and in that, have sold more albums in South Africa than Coldplay has in the US. (Crazy, right?) As they make their US run, this is sure to be a “catch them when you could” kind of show.

Nat and Alex Wolff were probably the cutest little guys I’ve seen in a long time! They were super talented and have some amazing die-hard fans! The Roxy was the last stop on the “Fully Clothed Tour” and now they return to their hit Nickelodeon show – “Naked Brothers Band.” We can’t wait to have them here again…and with the youngest fan base, I think I’ve EVER seen walk thru our doors – we hope their first concert experience was a great one! Were you at the show? Take pictures? Send ’em to us!

Special shout out to fastcompany.com for their great write up on all things Roxy blog. As always, we’re flattered by the attention – and are really happy to be recognized as a forward moving club and social networking team. It’s because we’ve received the amount of feedback we have via the blog (both positive and negative) that we are able to really address the wants and needs of the club goers, fans, patrons, and the rest! We look forward to all good things in the future. Thanks again- please check out the full article here.
For the vast majority of people, “social media” means joining Facebook or LinkedIn and wondering why they joined. I asked Nic what he thought was the secret to his success. He said, “I got on board with this plan. Annie and I are each online 3-4 hours a day talking to customers and the community. This isn’t something we paid money for and farmed out.” He added, “We were really stuck in a rut for so long. Reaching out to our customers like this makes us more honest about who we are, where we stand, and what we need to do to change.”
A year ago, the Roxy had an increasingly bad reputation online and a website with a three year old calendar. On July 17th, VH1 fans will give them the vote for having the best rock venue website. By taking the time to learn and embrace the tools of social media and Web 2.0, Nic and his club went from zero to VH1 in 12 months flat.
What a party! All the Shwayze fans came out in throngs last night to support some of our favorite boys that are taking over the scene! Thanks to all who came out, see you on the 15th! Click here to purchase tickets for that show – or call 310 278 9457.

So since the last blog, the line has grown substantially! We’ve heard some great stories of traveling near and far, and we’re happy to have found out that this show is the only all ages show on the Foxboro Tour!
Foxboro Hot Tubs at The Roxy, OMG! What an exciting show!! This band has caused quite a buzz on the web and we cannot wait to see them live! Because of the demand on this show, you can only purchase tickets in person at The Roxy box office the day of the show. Tickets will be $20 cash and there is a two ticket maximum per person and both people must be together in line to receive the tickets. Have no fear tho, because we are allowing you to lineup starting 8am on the day of the show. So once you are in line and get to the door, you will buy your tickets and immediately proceed into The Roxy. Get ready to strut your stuff on the Sunset Strip and make an event out of it! Meet some fans in line…share stories…and make some new friends. Have no doubt, you will find some internet fame as I will undoubtedly be blogging the line in true Roxy fashion. We know their fans are traveling from near and far for this show – and we can’t wait to see you all! Also, a friendly reminder – no recording devices of any kind, no cameras and/or cell phones will be allowed into the show!
We know this performance is going to be such a treat…as it always is when amazing artists swing by for intimate performances (Dolly Parton anyone?). And Bryan will be no exception! We know theirs been a ton of rumors about this show, but we don’t want anyone to miss out on this performance so make sure to get your tickets when they go onsale this THURDSAY 5/1. Limited tickets will be available so click here or call 310 278 9457! And really…who DOESN’T love Summer of ’69?? Check out some out classics…and some hot new tunes.
As if Friday’s aren’t already a reason to celebrate, today is going to be that much more exciting – as we welcome the Legend that is DOLLY PARTON. We hate to brag, as we know it’s only a few of the luckiest folks that get to attend -but it’s been years and years since she’s been here, and now in celebration of her new record – we are happy she came back to us!
It hasn’t been long since the boys of Tokio Hotel came to visit…but we miss them! Lucky for us, their first ever US performance (at the Roxy of course) is well documented in their new youtube videos! It’s fun to relive the excitement – we cannot wait to have them back!
If you’ve seen some of our past blogs….you’ll know we’re pretty huge fans of crazy fandom – and as we rolled into work this fine Monday morning, we were very excited to see some very enthusiastic fans camped outside. I especially loved the air mattress. For all you fans that aren’t able to check out the show tonight…what are some of your favorite Backstreet Boys memories? Are you excited for AJ’s solo stuff?
And lucky for us, as I ran outside to take some pictures…ran into AJ himself showing the fans some love- check it out!
Today has been a really really great day! And as the girls and I start wrapping up our work, and get into party mode – we are a little sad! We don’t want this day to end. The energy in the office today was a little like summer vacation…we were a little giddy – everything about our day, and the band, and the crew has been the best EVER. We didn’t quite know what to expect – as we have a little language barrier going on – and we have been pleasantly surprised! The band is adorable – and from what they told us, the have loved being in sunny CA – even if just for a day or two. Now, we are sitting here listening to them sound check and they sound GREAT. Thanks to our neighbors who have been so patient with all the fans today – and our security who came out before the sun sets to make sure everyone was safe. We hope the international fans are having a legendary Roxy experience and they find us again one day on their travels back to the states!
So having been a fanatic fan at one point in my life as well, i FULLY appreciate the intensity that is currently camped out outside the office window. Perhaps my favorite part…THE POSTERS!! Take a look at the beautiful art currently making the Sunset Strip home.
And it continues!! Here’s the latest update on the line…and some new fans that have come along to join the fun! We love hearing all your stories – how far did you travel?
So friends, the time is here!! We never thought this day would come…and now here we are! It’s been non stop Tokio for a few weeks now – and we’d like to thank all the dedicated fans who have flown in from all over the world – to see the band in their FIRST US appearance! You’ve made this, what is sure to be, an amazing SOLD OUT show! We knew today would be a great day, because as we left the Roxy yesterday evening – after a hard days work – we ran into the band on the corner! They seemed to be loving the Sunset strip already…and seemed very excited for the show! Just to give you an idea of what what’s going on here at the club, at 9:30 am…here’s a few pics of some of our favorite fans in line so far.
