In an LA Times article about the Key Club shutting its doors--apparently for remodeling--neighbor and owner of The Roxy Nic Adler talks about the scene going on further east on Sunset: "The Eastside is a strong market... Their community really participates. The artists live there. The clubs are down the street, and people don't have to worry about parking. Our community in West Hollywood moved out. We've been battling that." The upcoming documentary East of Sunset explores the burgeoning scene.
