Some Hear Explosions!? One of The Sunset Strip’s best and brightest takes the stage at the Viper Room on Tuesday, Dec. 7 along with Hollywood Heartthrob, EchoGram and Shawn Chrystopher. School yourself on some great local up and comers. Doors open at 7:30 p.m.  Tickets are $10. www.viperroom.com

Wednesday, Dec. 8 Key Club presents punk rock pragmatists Anti-Flag. Flying the finger in the face of the man for almost two decades, these underground anarchists have gained respect for their “old-school ethics of punk: fast, loud, obnoxious and anti-everything that ends with an ‘ism.’” Doors open at 7 p.m. and tickets are $20. This is an all-ages show. www.keyclub.com

Rather than facing another evening of grueling L.A. gridlock, take a detour to The Sunset Strip and spend your Thursday evening exploring a bevy of happy hours. With well over a dozen hotels and restaurants offering budget friendly fare and discounted drinks, you can while away your post-work wind-down bar hopping at the “other” happiest place on earth. For your guide to all places happy, check out TheSunsetStrip.com/happyhour.

They’re back! And better than ever! All-star super cover group Camp Freddy returns to The Roxy this Friday, Dec. 10 bringing a killer lineup of openers, including Sabrosa Purr and Matt Sorum’s Darling Stilettos. Last week the band crushed it, playing rock n’ roll favorites featuring the “who’s who” of special guests. See who shows up this week. Doors open at 8:00 p.m.  www.theroxyonsunset.com

Saturday, Dec. 11 get your read and celebrity insider on at Book Soup as the indie book retailer hosts TV stars and real life power couple Harry Hamlin and Lisa Rinna. With Hamlin’s memoire, titled Full Frontal Nudity: The Making of an Accidental Actor, and Rinna’s Starlit: A Novel, the duo will most certainly have plenty of Hollywood dirt to dish. This signing/discussion begins at 5 p.m. www.booksoup.com

Tastemaker extraordinaire Sarah Berkowitz brings you an unparallel lineup of punk rock mayhem at the Viper Room this Sunday, Dec. 12.  Ending your week with a swift kick in the teeth, her inaugural night of Up The Drunx features Sex N Violence, The Bombpops, Murderland, Toys That Kill and Neutralboy. For cheap drinks and great bands, it doesn’t get much better than this. Doors open at 8 p.m. Tickets are a punk rock $5. www.viperroom.com

WEST HOLLYWOOD (Los Angeles Magazine) — It was an epidemiologist’s worst nightmare set to the new Justin Timberlake/SZA collab from Trolls World Tour.

L.A. was hours away from shutting down all bars due to the coronavirus pandemic, but you wouldn’t have known it from the typical Sunday chaos on Santa Monica Boulevard, as throngs of people (some shirtless) crammed into West Hollywood gay bars like Mother Lode, Mickey’s, and Rocco’s for one last ungloved hurrah.

At Rocco’s, a drag queen in a black latex leotard bravely swooped her hand down to grab a dollar bill from a customer.

Another performer did the splits, touching the floor ever-so-quickly as she pulled herself up. Go-go dancers valiantly kneeled on bar tops, accepting cash in their […]
