- Join Together for WhoLA:
For a pre-show get together, I'm currently looking at the Hollywood and
Highland area which is walking distance to the Bowl. This is a great area
with all sorts of restaurants and pubs:
Hotel wise, the Renaissance Hollywood hotel is also right there, but a
little spendy ($180.00)
8/8/04 Sunday Night: The Who Show Gig at hopefully the Whiskey
8/9/04 Monday Afternoon to Early evening: pre-show somewhere at Hollywood
8/9/04 Monday Night: The Who
Please vote on your potential attendance so we can get a head count
especially for the pre-show. As with Hurleys in NY, in order to get a cool
room, we may have to guarantee a specific number of people or fork out some

Good to see some responses regarding a possible mini-Whola in LA
While it doesn't look promising given everyone's responses (I would
totally be glad to help but my workload right now prevents me from
giving it the attention it deserves), I can say with plenty of
confidence that The Who Show WILL perform somewhere in Hollywood on
the evening of August 8. Right now, the most promising venue is the
famous Whisky A-Go-Go on the Sunset Strip. We are looking at other
adjacent venues such as those you've all suggested, plus others like
the Knitting Factory and BB King's. However, as of right now, we are
unconfirmed to headline at the Whisky on August 8.
That being said: Even if it's not a Whola, there will be PLENTY of
fun and activity at our show. There will be an auction of some VERY
good seats to The Who the next night (proceeds above and beyond the
face value of the tickets will go to the John Entwistle Foundation),
auctioning of JEF t-shirts and whatever else Steve Luongo can
graciously donate, announcement of the winner of our "Then and Now
Sweepstakes" (see details on our website), and, of course, at least a
2-hour set from The Who Show. I know we're a poor "substitute for
the other guys", but if you don't have tickets to the big show,
hopefully you'll get some kind of kick out of it. Other surprises
So: If you ARE in LA August 8, please make plans to come see us.
Once the venue is confirmed, I will announce it here, on other
messageboards, and of course our website.
Hope to see each and every one of you August 8.
The Who Show
