Sunset Strip Music Festival
I absolutely love the Sunset Strip. It is indeed legendary. So much history. Rock and Roll high school, anyone? The death of the Sunset Tower Records was so sad to me. Viper Room needs no intro. Whenever I go out there, I feel different. Like free and alive. So, I was happy to hear that they were going to hold a "Sunset Strip Music Festival" for the first time this year. I went to two shows.

The Shys, The Deadly Syndrome, & Hot Hot Heat @ The Roxy
All three bands are really good. It was a great lineup. I thought the Deadly Syndrome was especially amazing as I had never seen them live before (I know, I know). Better late than never, I was blown away. He really sings. Overall, the entire day, ever since I woke up, was a weird day. I wasn't feeling it. It was way too hot in the Roxy, we ended up leaving during the last song. Only to come out and see police everywhere, and to see a pedestrian had been hit by a car and receiving first aid on the street. That was really sad to see, but I was glad because I think he survived. But it just reminded me of what happened just about over a month ago. Anyways, and then the weird day was over. Here are the pictures. (not that many pics either)
