Sometimes you see rock tonight and sometimes you want to be rock tonight. If the latter, every Wednesday night at the Hyperion Tavern in the Los Feliz/Franklin Hills area, groups of friends gather to unite as one, to test their skills, woo the crowd and find their glory in Rock Band. Wednesday nights at the shack filled with chandeliers used to be reserved for Guitar Hero zealots, now groups of four can hit the stage and cheer the crowd or get booed off stage.

Four dollar beers, six choices in all, from PBR to Heineken, are all they serve at this hard to find hole-in-the-wall (it's between two big trees in a pretty anonymous looking building). According to one bartender last week, between 8 and 9 p.m. are the best times to get in and grab a number in line to rock out a few times. Otherwise, get ready to watch a plethora of others play on stage until your number is finally beckoned upon at last call. At least there's beer and horrible "musicians" trying to play Bon Jovi.
