That’s Slash, the guitarist at the Sunset Strip Music Festival coming up in August. Here’s what’s going down.
Slash is an obvious choice to be honored at the 3rd Annual SSMF for all he has done for the Sunset Strip and rock music in general.
Slash will be saluted on Thursday, August 26th at the House of Blues Sunset. In addition, the City of West Hollywood has declared August 26th to be Slash Day. Watch the tires, buddy, that’s not what they mean.
The next night, August 27th, six clubs on the strip will have concerts. The details of who is playing where and when are still to be worked out. But the participating clubs are Cat Club, House of Blues, Key Club, the Roxy Theatre, Viper Room and Whisky A Go-Go.
It gets even better on Saturday, August 28th. There will be a street festival with outdoor stages set up between San Vicente and Doheny, along with performances at the clubs, merch for sale, and other interactive hoo-ha all day on the Strip.
Slash said he is “sincerely overwhelmed” by the forthcoming tribute. Check back here for more details as they develop.
