In Conversation with illustrator Robbie Conal
Shepard Fairey is the most influential artist in the world and this text is a critical examination of his art and life. By digging into to the many layers of being an anti-modern artist, much can be learned about the current state of the art world and those that are influenced by the artist. Fairey has challenged conventions, formulas, and traditional borders with much fanfare and criticism. Through the life and art of Fairey, we see paradigms broken and an artist working within an ever-growing platform for making meaningful art. (Cameron & Company)

Tony Fletcher discusses and signs Boy About Town: A Memoir
Apr 21 2014 - 7:00pm
Book Soup

The author of highly acclaimed Keith Moon and Smiths biographies now tells his own story of a life in love with music, taking the reader back to the glory days of the 1970s. This is the story of his formative years in the pre- and post-punk music scenes of London, told via a Top 50 countdown: attendance at seminal gigs and encounters with musical heroes; schoolboy projects that became national success stories; the style culture of punks, mods, and skinheads and the tribal violence that enveloped them; life as a latchkey kid in a single-parent household; weekends on the football terraces in a quest for street credibility; and the teenage boy's unending obsession with losing his virginity. Featuring a vibrant cast of supporting characters from school friends to rock stars, and built up from notebooks, diaries, interviews, letters, and issues of his now legendary fanzine Jamming!, this is an evocative, bittersweet, amusing, and wholly original account of growing up and coming of age in the glory days of the 1970s.

Steel Panther Comes Home With An ‘All You Can Eat’ Release & Party

The Sunset Strip’s own spandex sheathed, hair-metal mainstays, Steel Panther, recently held a press conference of sorts at Hustler Hollywood, an oh so apropos location, to announce the release of their new sartorial opus, All You Can Eat.
 
The band, chaperoned by a bevy of booty shorts clad Hustler girls took questions from the “press” before launching into an acoustic set debuting songs from the new record, as well as fan favorites.
 
Later that evening, at the legendary Rainbow Bar and Grill, the guys took a short break from the afterparty to speak with TSS.com and reminisce a bit about the band’s long and storied history with The Sunset Strip.
 
 

2014 SSMF Expanding Street Fest To 2-Days In September, Partnering With Nederlander

The 2014 Sunset Strip Music Festival is getting ready to rock, announcing today that the seventh annual festival will be expanding the street festival component to two days -- Saturday and Sunday -- and moving to Sept. 19-21.
 
This year's festival will kick off on Friday, Sept. 19 with its annual evening celebrating an artist or band who has made an impact on The Sunset Strip's musical history. Last year SSMF celebrated Joan Jett, with previous honorees including The Doors, Motley Crue, Slash, Ozzy Osbourne and Sunset Strip venue founders Lou Adler, Mario Maglieri and Elmer Valentine. Live performances in The Sunset Strip's venues -- House of Blues, The Roxy, Viper Room and Whisky A Go-Go -- will follow the celebration.
