Default Bobby Hart & Keith Allison at the Egyptian Theater Sunday November 1

Rhino celebrates the breakthrough success of Where The Action Is! Los Angeles Nuggets 1965-1968 with a full day of sights and sounds from the era,

including screenings of rare films and episodes of The Monkees,

plus live performances, a special signing session,

sales of vintage merchandise and righteous Rhino giveaways.

Where The Action Is! Los Angeles Nuggets 1965-1968 has received resounding acclaim,

earning four stars from Mojo and Uncut as well as a 9/10 score from Spin.

The new four-CD boxed set is the latest installment in Rhino’s successful Nuggets series,

which maps an alternative musical history of the ’60s.

The day’s events include:


Monkees Matinee

See four episodes of The Monkees television series not available on DVD (“The Case Of The Missing Monkee,” “Monkees Marooned,” “The Chaperone” and “The Frodis Caper.”) Previously unscreened theatrically, these rare 35mm prints feature soundtracks unheard since 1973. Host Andrew Sandoval, a respected authority on The Monkees, will also screen rare trailers and commercials featuring the pre-fab foursome. Following the screening, Sandoval will lead a Q&A session that features Bobby Hart, a key songwriter for the Monkees, and other surprise guests.


’60s L.A. Promotional Film Potpourri

A screening of archival promotional films that feature The Mama and The Papas at the Hollywood boutique deVoss; Sonny & Cher recording at Gold Star Studios; Boyce & Hart on Hollywood Boulevard singing “Out and About”; The Turtles visiting The Plush Pup and Pandora’s Box on the Sunset Strip. Domenic Priore, author of Riot on Sunset Strip: Rock ’n’ Roll’s Last Stand in Hollywood, will kick things off with a brief, color slide show.

Mondo Mod (1966)

A full-color pastiche of what made L.A. teens tick during the era, narrated by KHJ disc jockey Humble Harv. See the Sunset Strip and Hollywood Boulevard in their mod-prime, from Belinda boutique and Lewin’s Record Shop to dancing at the Whisky a Go Go.


Riot on Sunset Strip (1967)

Described as the “garage punk Nashville” in Marshall Crenshaw’s definitive rock ’n’ roll movie book, Hollywood Rock, the film features The Standells, The Chocolate Watchband and The Enemys. Riot follows the exploits L.A. mods and their corporate grandfathers trying to rub out all the fun on The Strip.

The Pad, And How To Use It (1966)

Unavailable on DVD, this obscure feature (adapted from a stage play) follows a lonely bachelor looking for love at a symphonic recital who finds himself mixed up with a sexy swinger turned on by the Sunset Strip scene. The Pad features a healthy dose of Whisky a Go Go footage, when folks there still knew how to dance. The Knickerbockers (of “Lies” and “One Track Mind” fame) – the Red Velvet house band – are featured on stage. That alone makes this rarely seen Hollywood hacker flick a worthy trip for the discriminating Nuggets audience.

Between the 2-4 PM, there will be a special signing session.

Merrell Fankhauser (Fapardokly), Bobby Hart (Boyce & Hart), Billy Hinsche (Dino, Desi & Billy), Van Dyke Parks, and Mark Tulin (The Electric Prunes) will all be on hand to sign copies of Where The Action Is and whatever other items fans might bring. Action producer Andrew Sandoval will also be signing copies of his book The Monkees: The Day-By-Day Story Of The '60s TV Pop Sensation along with Monkees screenwriter David Evans. Domenic Priore will also be on hand to sign copies of his book Riot on Sunset Strip: Rock ’n’ Roll’s Last Stand in Hollywood

Between the matinee and evening sessions, a legendary ’60s D.J. will introduce performances by The Living Sickness (’60s garage punk) and go-go dancing by Moana Santana (Lucha Va Vaoom) and Brandy (Satisfaction).

I so wish I could go to this.

Also yall owe it to yourselves to get that Where The Action Is boxed set. It will set you back $60, but its worth every cent.
