The Sunset Strip is a neon name in the music history of Southern California. Three of the district's backstage legends will be honored during the Sunset Strip Music Festival, a three-day event that will unite the marquees of the Roxy, the Whisky a Go-Go, the House of Blues, the Viper Room, the Key Club and the Cat Club. It kicks off June 26 at the House of Blues with a concert tribute to Lou Adler, Mario Maglieri and Elmer Valentine, impresarios who were key figures in the Strip during its glory years in the 1960s, when Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison and the Byrds were making history.

In these transitional times, it wouldn't be right if we didn't saddle up and do some intensive clubbing for you all--first-hand knowledge is the best-hand knowledge, I always say. So we corralled a few pals and spent Friday night hitting up some new joints on the Sunset Strip (see Club Hoppin'), and my, my, my, there's a lot happening out there. . . .

The swarm of desperation surrounding the doorman at A Quick Fix, the Thursday-night dance club at the 360 restaurant in Hollywood, looked like something out of Vertigo (not the movie, silly, the '80s downtown dance spot). Something about the combo of Madonna (who was seen hanging out last week) and a visit by the fire marshal kept many from getting their weekly Fix. But hey, if it ain't broken--surely, the same crowd'll be angling to get in tonight. . . .
