Los Angeles' most famous hot dog bun needs a roll. Trouble is, Tail O' the Pup owner Dennis Blake doesn't have a place to roll it to. The landmark hot dog stand that resembles a mustard-slathered wienie-in-a-bun -- featured in movies and music videos and considered an important piece of L.A. architecture -- has sat on wheels and been covered with a tarp in a Torrance warehouse since being evicted five years ago from its longtime home. Blake badly wants to return the Pup to its chowhound followers.

The rap-rock leviathan Linkin Park hasn't played in its L.A. hometown since a small May 2012 benefit show at the House of Blues. Today, the group announced that it will end that absence with a headlining turn at this year's Sunset Strip Music Festival. "We started our career playing clubs on the Strip. It's a thrill to be back where it all began," lead singer Chester Bennington said in a statement. The band's fifth and most recent album, "Living Things," topped album charts when it was released last summer, and it was generally praised for its more thoughtful mix of electronics and emotive hard rock.
