Despite all the competition that's around it and new clubs that are constantly popping up, the Roxy has continued to be a major player in the LA rock club scene.

It was just a year ago yesterday that the Red Hot Chili Peppers played a rockin show at the classic venue - and not only was LAist there, but we gave out a dozen free tickets to lucky wieners. Keeping the hope alive, the Roxy was home to another legendary group just a few weeks ago when the Sex Pistols played there.

And then on Friday, the B-52's will hit the small stage on the Sunset Strip, proving that the Roxy still has it and it ain't going nowhere. But for now let's just harken back to a year ago when Flea, Anthony, John and that other guy brought it all back home.

Another tune from the RHCP after the jump.
