LIVE EVENTS – “SUPER TUESDAYS LIVE – THE COUCH – MM/TAKEOVER!!!”

What was billed by local LA press as “an insiders night of music open to everyone” The couch, sadly came to an end in 2009 . Originally birthed at the Hollywood club “The Lava Lounge” enjoying 2 successful seasons at that location we moved to the historical Hollywood bar “3 Clubs” in 2007.  “Get Luckie Show” closed it doors at the now defunct Tangier!  In late 2013 with the partnership between Luckie Pierre, Artists Garrison Starr and AG (The Rescues), we have returned to showcasing up-and-coming talent as well as established artists in an intimate setting.  Monday Monday TAKEOVER!! was started at Room 5 in Los Angeles and occurs every other month on the first Monday.

Super Tuesdays Live was co-created by singer/actor Mike Rossi, and Graham Kurzner, the original inception was called “The Living Room” and had Rossi hosted with Grammy Artist Jacob Luttrell while Graham spun house music and ran and designed the bar program to match the show.  When Room 5 closed The Living Room relocated to The Hotel Cafe, for several months before returning to a remodelled Room 5 Space and operating as a speakeasy night only open on Tuesdays.

Word of mouth grew and eventually, the speakeasy was reopened in January of 2017 as Fairbanks. Were Graham and Rossi continue every Tuesday with the new addition of multi-grammy winner Dave Yaden in the MD position. Admission is free before 11 pm and 5 dollars after or dig around for the weekly password found only on their mailing list.
