The Viper Room, a legendary nightclub on Sunset Strip in Hollywood, is a place I wanted to visit already on my last trip to L.A. It never happened, so this time I made sure we go. This rock/metal venue was opened in 1993, partially owned by Johnny Depp (<3). No later than the year of opening, River Phoenix died of a drug overdose in front of the club. Later on, young Hollywood celebrities, actors and musicians were regular guests of the club.
Both big and new names have been seen on the stage. We went to see Pink Fuzzy Animals (among others). They had only played a few months together, which was hard to believe.
I was surprised to see a Facebook post by a friend I met 2 years ago in Hollywood: her band SlowStart is playing at Viper Room this month! Wish I could see that, really like their first single I feel for you. Besides being the lead singer of the band, she's an author, a photographer and what not. Take a look at her bold blog Under L. Marie.

After The Viper Room we headed to The Playhouse. It is rare to hear hip hop music at L.A. clubs (wouldn't think so but it's true... it's all about house and trance nowadays), but on that Saturday they had a hip hop night with DJ Justin Credible. We danced the whole night and had tons of fun. We also bumped into Nonso Anozie (a.k.a. Xaro Xhoan Daxos from The Game of Thrones) a couple of times. He chatted and danced with us for a while and seemed to be very laid back and casual celebrity.
