The Sunset Strip is synonymous with Rock, but that doesn't mean that every place on The Strip, in fact, rocks. Some, obviously, have grandfathered themselves into it; based on their longevity and history, Viper Room or Whiskey-A-Go-Go could host the Justin Bieber Pajama Sleepover and still come out with cred intact. But for most places, this cred must still be earned and tested on a regular basis. So I've come up with a checklist to analyze whether or not Trousdale's "Rock Tuesday" with Hammered Satin last night actually rocked. Let's see if we can figure it out.
First, the Sunset Strip Rock Checklist. A party on/near The Strip is officially Rock N' Roll if it has all or most of the following:
...so how did Trousdale do?
(in no particular order:)
I'd say we're 100% on that one.
Much as I would have liked to see a face tattoo in here, this will do.
It doesn't get more Sixties than the Jim Morrison vest.
Umm... partial credit?
Leather/Sparkly Skintight Pants
Full credit, and may God have mercy on our souls.
It's not a party without babes.
That would be a black leather boot stepping on her in the above photo. Do you get bonus points if it's a chick fight? Why yes, yes you do.
Am I sure that they're actually fighting? Don't rain on my parade, pal.
I'm not sure a bottle service table really qualifies. But at least we know someone was getting loaded. It's a start.
...and while we saw a few scary ladies in the photos, there were no actual dragons. But honestly, this is not a bad performance for an establishment that has goals beyond Rock. We're getting there, Trousdale Rock Tuesday!
