Hollywood 77 – Cat Club – 08/29/08
Written by Alison “MetalBabe” Cohen
I am so glad I had the chance to see Hollywood 77 play the Cat Club 8/29/08. It had been a while, and I was WAY overdue. Honestly, Hollywood 77 is one of my top favorite bands in Los Angeles, and I really missed them. Also, I wanted to see my friends Freekshow and Lenka. Since my last Hollywood 77 show, they had gone through quite the line-up change, including the addition of Shawn Smash on guitar. (Shawn was on tour with Total Chaos at the time of this show.) Also, they had re-worked their entire set list.
Hollywood 77 were full of energy and enthusiasm, and were KILLER! Their set consisted of three Dead Boys songs, “All This and More,” my absolute FAVORITE “Russian Roulette,” and “Sonic Reducer.” They also played three Ramones songs, “Something to Do,” “Chinese Rocks,” and “Rockaway Beach.” Their set was rounded out by tunes from the Misfits, Kiss and Johnny Thunder’s “Born to Lose.”
Hollywood 77 always puts on a high energy, fun and sexy rock and roll show. If you haven’t seen Hollywood 77 already, you are missing out! Make sure to check them out at Club Hell October 29th w/Stolen Heart.
