Frontin & Maxin: Summertime Hits The Sunset Strip With A Pop-Up Craft Beer Garden And 100,000 Record Swap

The Sunset Strip
We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

Best friends of summer, beer and music, are coming out to play next weekend as The Sunset Strip says hello to summer fun with two new outdoor events: ColLAboration Pop-Up Craft Beer Garden and The Sunset Strip Record Swap .

On Saturday, July 9, LIVE! On Sunset will host a record swap in the former shrine of Tower Records. To satisfy your listening and DJing desires, the event will run from noon to 7:00 p.m. and feature more than 40 vendors and 100,000 records thanks to a partnership between Record Collector News, KLOS, and the Sunset Strip Business Association. Early birds get in for $15 (or $10 with the donation of a nonperishable food item) and admission is free after 2 p.m.

Three blocks away in the James Lot between the Hustler store and 9000 Sunset, the ColLAboration Craft Beer Garden will pop-up its 24 taps from noon to 9:00 p.m. with games and special menus from local restaurants. Curated by Ryan Sweeney of Verdugo Bar and The Surly Goat, Brian Lenzo of Blue Palms Brewhouse, Clay Harding of 38 Degrees, and Tony Yanow of Tony’s Darts Away and Mohawk Bend, the ever-changing garden will also re-bloom on July 16 and July 23. The 21+ brouhaha will run you a $10 admission / membership fee. Pours range from $5-$6.

A map of all Sunset Strip parking options can be found here . Also, please enjoy a little DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince to help get you in the mood c/o the official Sunset Strip-ers. Who are we to argue with the organizers ; they know how people respond to summer madness.
