In the first decade after the late Doug Weston opened the Troubadour in 1957, the West Hollywood club presented such influential folk-pop musicians as the Byrds, Joni Mitchell and Buffalo Springfield and legendary comedians like Lenny Bruce and Richard Pryor. In the 1970s, the Troubadour was the site of historic performances by Tim Buckley, Linda Ronstadt, Neil Young, Cheech & Chong, Kris Kristofferson, Bruce Springsteen, the Pointer Sisters, Tom Waits, George Carlin, Miles Davis, Steve Martin, Carole King, James Taylor, Leonard Cohen, Elton John and the poet Charles Bukowski. In the 1980s, the club went in a hard-rock direction, hosting such groups as Metallica, Warrant, Pearl Jam, W.A.S.P. and Guns N' Roses. Since then, the Troubadour continues to book rising bands alongside established names, including Fiona Apple, Manu Chao, Nellie McKay, Radiohead, Gogol Bordello, System of a Down, Johnny Cash, the Go-Betweens, Franz Ferdinand, Cypress Hill, Fleet Foxes and the Cure. The club has a kitchen and three full bars, as well as a balcony that looks down over the stage and dance floor. All ages.

It’s been a long time since comedian Lenny Bruce performed and got arrested on obscenity charges at The Troubadour in 1957, but the West Hollywood live-music venue on Santa Monica Boulevard still packs ’em in and pours drinks freely with a sense, to quote an old Neil Young song, that it’s better to burn out than fade away. Patrons and rockers hang out at the wood-paneled bar in front, maybe grab a seat at a black leather booth, and wait their turn to perform or to catch the... More »
