Tonight in Rock in LA - The Bronx, Great Northern, Rocket
The Key Club gets top billing tonight because The Bronx headlines a benefit for Wheels for Humanity, which supplies wheelchairs. Also on the bill : Chuck Ragan (ex-Hot Water Music) with members of Flogging Molly, and some rock star karaoke.
Everyone will probably be there for either the ice skating or Great Northern, but The Submarines came out with a haunting CD that we played all summer long. Go downtown and ice skate from 8p-10p to these cool bands during the bizarre Spaceland on Ice in Pershing Square.
Our girls Rocket will be at Safari Sam's headlining some weird Blondie tribute. Girl groups doing Blondie all night? Works for us.
And if you can sneak out of work early you might catch Chuck Ragan (see above) at a pre-Happy Hour (3pm) gig at the Silverlake Lounge. Now thats an hour we can work with.
