Where to Find Too Short on Sunday Night

April 02, 1998|HEIDI SIEGMUND CUDA

Shorty the Pimp, a.k.a. rapper Too Short, is scheduled to appear at the Key Club Sunday. In case you're wondering where to find this West Hollywood nightspot, just follow signs on the Strip to the Building Formerly Known as Billboard Live (but what we really want to know is, are they ever going to finish construction in the parking lot?). . . .

Tripped into the Burgundy Room on a recent Monday, and much to my delight found a very cool rockabilly scene--good music, gussied up people and apparently a weekly affair. . . . Twister Naked tore the roof off at the Garage in Silver Lake during a performance last week at the venue's weekly romp, "The Cadillac Club." There were also a lot of skivvies flying around, though it wasn't always clear where they were coming from. The lead singer's multiple costume changes, which had him ripping off a red vinyl suit to reveal some daisy dukes--and left almost nothing to the imagination--was a nice fit with the male guitarist's shorty short rubber sausage dress and hearty strumming. It's been awhile since we've blushed at such naughty behavior. In general, the Garage has been keeping atop the musical heap, booking strong acts ranging from such known artists as the Jesus and Mary Chain and L7, as well as up-and-comers--basically, keeping the flame alive in ol' Silver Lake. . . . The news from the Viper front is look out for unannounced shows by those that rhyme with crows (April should bring plenty of high action to the West Hollywood club, famous for its famous faces and muy excellente surprise shows). . . . To the dude who pulled out a gun in front of L.A.'s El Rey Theatre last Thursday night and aimed it in the direction of a group of young hip-hop fans who were waiting in line to get in to Malathion's party: It's not a gang, pal, it's a club, so leave your funky gun-toting arse at home next time (it's folks like you who give rap a bad rap).
