A lounge that's all about rock

Rocker Sirius Trixon is launching a new rock 'n' roll social club called Star Lounge at North on Sunset Boulevard every Tuesday. Kerrang! .... Those cross-dressing ghouls the Peppermint Creeps perform at the Key Club at Club Paranormal on Saturday. Marilyn Manson never looked so good.... Don't miss the "Art of Punk" exhibition at the brand-new Kantor Gallery on Melrose Avenue, through March 14.... Scenester Cesar Hernandez says the hottest night at Falcon on Sunset Boulevard is Monday, when it's only you and the ghost of Valentino. Tres sheik.

Concorde is nearly ready to fly

So, word on the street is that Paris Hilton is one of the investors in the new nightclub Concorde, soon to open on Cahuenga Boulevard. Fancy. We also hear that the Bolthouse crew, which rocks the Ivar, the Lounge and A.D., has already promised to promote a night at the new venue. Fancy schmancy ... DJ Rob Swift of the hit squad the X-ecutioners hits Zanzibar in Santa Monica on Saturday night.... Club Violaine, a monthly shoe-gazer night at Basswerks on

Turning up the heat at Nacional

For the hottest scene in Hollywood on Tuesday nights, better head to Nacional. And if you do, be sure to check out the new neighboring Cuban restaurant, Paladar. Spice is so nice....

Also on Tuesdays, check out the hot New Romantics night at Vida in Los Feliz, which features DJs spinning the likes of T. Rex, Roxy Music and the Cars. Let the good times roll.... C'mon get happy: We hear the best happy hour in Hollywood is happening at Pinot. Might have something to do with the stiff martinis.... Say it ain't so! Whisky-Rainbow-Joint booker Mike Giangreco is launching a rock 'n' roll baseball league. Batter batter, hey!
