Hollywood: Avalon 9/29

On Friday, September 29th, my roommate and I headed out for a night at the Avalon in Hollywood (conveniently located by the Hollywood/Vine Metro Red Line Station) where we had gotten on a guest list to hear the spinning styles of DJ K6, DJ Heimeth and DJ Coke-E.

Formerly known as "The Palace", the Avalon is a venue that embodies the rich history of Hollywood in its classic elegance as well as providing a great atmosphere for a night club. It was first the "Hollywood Playhouse" when it opened on January 24, 1927 and the location still features the elaborate detail and etchings of a1920s playhouse.

DJ K6 and DJ Heimeth were the opening acts for headliner DJ Coke-E, a featured DJ on Power 106 (and can be heard on Power 106's Cali Caliente weekends). The music was a great mix of songs and the crowd was kept dancing throughout the evening. I particularly enjoyed the seamless blend of music in DJ Heimeth's set.

Following the Avalon, we didn't have to roam far for some late night eating where we grabbed some pizza slices at a nearby restaurant before heading out of Hollywood.
