Music festival to honor Strip vets

The Sunset Strip is a neon name in the music history of Southern California. Three of the district's backstage legends will be honored during the Sunset Strip Music Festival, a three-day event that will unite the marquees of the Roxy, the Whisky a Go-Go, the House of Blues, the Viper Room, the Key Club and the Cat Club.

It kicks off June 26 at the House of Blues with a concert tribute to Lou Adler, Mario Maglieri and Elmer Valentine, impresarios who were key figures in the Strip during its glory years in the 1960s, when Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison and the Byrds were making history.
