In the late 90's, The Viper Room was an icon of rock-n-roll stardom and Los Angeles youth. It was once owned by Johnny Depp, and it is the infamous club that took the life of River Phoenix.

After the Viper Room, which included unexpected music guest Alicia Witt*, we went across the street to the Whisky, another famous music venue, to snap some quick pics.
With all of it's traffic, broken dreams, and never ending career disappointments, Los Angeles is truly the city of guts and glory.
