Just a few tips for the boys while they’re in California.
If you’re going to be in West Hollywood at this time, it would be cruel to make the rookies buy the drinks at the Viper Room on Sunset Boulevard. They’ll be paying off their credit card longer than students take to pay off student loans. Don’t forget to pack Scott Gomez’ credit card.
If you plan on going to see live music at the Troubadour on Santa Monica Blvd, it’s cash only there, and on the 3rd, when you take on the Kings, you can probably make the late show to see the Blasters. It’s just 20 bucks. With cash only, hopefully Gomez slipped you a few bucks before you left Montreal.
If you plan on walking west on Santa Monica Blvd. to the Troubadour, you’ll walk through Boys Town, so be prepared to see guys holding hands and such.
If you want to hang out on the Sunset Strip and don’t want to pay Viper Room rates, then head over to Whisky A Go Go, but be prepared to stand because there’s only a few seats and tables upstairs.
Playing at the Whisky on the 3rd – Sam Behymer and the Bowties, Never Before, Dee Dee O’Malley, and a couple of others. Tickets can be bought at the door and they’re not saying how much. Just charge it to Scott Gomez, whatever it is.

When you’re walking east on the Sunset Strip from the Whisky, about a block away, please pause and reflect on the fact that this is where I was picked up for being under 18 and breaking curfew back in 1967 and had to spend a week in a Juvenile Hall. You won’t have to worry about this, but just be careful with these West Hollywood cops, especially if you’ve beaten the hometown Kings only hours before. But if you need bail money, just phone Gomez.
While on Sunset Strip, get in a bunch of cabs, head east to the outskirts of Beverly Hills, and rendevous at the Beverly Hills Hotel where you can enjoy caviar at the Polo Lounge. ($180.00). Tell them to bill Scott Gomez.
