This past Friday, Saint Rocke at 142 Pacific Coast Hwy in Hermosa Beach opened its doors to the public to come be entertained by three remarkable bands; Gorgeous Got a Gun, Back Pocket Memory, and Goodnight Noises. The Saint Rocke to many southern Californians has gone unnoticed and deserves some huge credit for its magnificence. This venue has been voted the “Number One live music venue for the South Bay” for the past three years. According to their website, it is the only live music venue in the USA to be streaming LIVE VIDEO in high-def and on the Internet.

This way no matter where a person was in the large venue they could watch the show. I will attest to this statement, by saying how awed I was at the flat screen televisions spread throughout the place. If you didn’t want to watch the show from the front of the stage, it was perfectly easy to watch it clearly from one of the flat screens in the several fireplace nooks around the venue.

Problems at Dodger Stadium Are a Lot Deeper Then One Beating

Most of the time we talk only Burbank, but this time we are going ‘Beyond’, although it is a subject that most Burbank people will experience sometime this season, Dodger Stadium.
As a high school coach for the last 30 years, I have gone to my share of baseball games. In fact, baseball was on my mind even back in the 70′s after graduating from Burroughs. I took a full time job at Dodger Stadium working for Danny Goodman in the souvenir department. During the off season, we worked on restocking, and when the games came I sold souvenirs in the left field ‘yellow’ (bottom deck) section. It was not about making money, it was just being around the game and being able to meet the occasional player.
The O’Malley’s owned the Dodgers back then and everything was done with an amount of class. The people who worked there back then had mostly been there since the Dodgers moved from Brooklyn, and it was truly a family atmosphere.
