FM Station re-union show in ‘NoHo’ Friday May 16th
Be there early on Friday May 16th. Same location Victory & Lankershim!
Wow. Talk about a flash back.
Founded in 1976 by proprietor Filthy McNasty, (owner of the original Filthy McNasty’s which is now the Sunset Strip Viper Room) FM Station was the premier live music venue of the San Fernando Valley. Located at Victory and Lankershim in North Hollywood, FM was the favorite watering hole to many of the music industry’s shiniest of stars, and was often coveted as their ‘nasty’ little secret.
FM Station helped launch the careers of many local bands such as Poison, Jones Street, Warrant, Bullet Boys, Bang Tango, LA Guns, Femme Fatale, WWIII, and many others. Mike Inez, bassist for Alice in Chains, toasted his first gig playing for Ozzy Osbourne here. Ralph Saenz, singer for Metal Skool and Atomic Punks, actually played with original band, Long Gone, at FM. Disco empire, Boogie Nights started here until capacity crowds forced them into cloning practices. Kiss Tribute band, Cold Gin played their first gig here without make-up.
FM Station’s reunion show will feature performances by Jones Street, Pair-a-dice, Hardly Dangerous and Vains of Jenna to name a few. There will also be a celebrity All-Star Jam at the end of the night that promises to be star studded.
