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.

Ladies and gentlemen, scenesters and wannabes, Calendar Weekend presents the Club Buzz awards, in honor of all those creatures of the night who long ago gave up sleep in order to show you a good time. It's our turn to give something back, so here to present our inaugural Buzz awards is the diva of the hour, our little trophy doll Betty. Please, hold all applause until the end. It's Betty's first time and she's quite nervous. * Best New Dance Club: Make-Up.

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 Key Club hit all the right notes last weekend, with the smashing opening of Friday's Club Rubber (which left lines lingering around the block all night) and Saturday's benefit show by the Artist, who performed at the West Hollywood nightclub for more than three hours, jamming with legendary bassist Larry Graham (Sly and the Family Stone) and Fishbone's Angelo Moore.
