Cruise Down the 1960s Sunset Strip as the Counterculture Moves In

New, 27 comments

The Whisky a Go Go opened on the Sunset Strip in January 1964, the Byrds played their first show at Ciro's in March 1965, and in 1966 the Sunset Strip riots (over nightclub curfews) inspired Buffalo Springfield's "For What It's Worth." For your Friday afternoon flashback, via Dangerous Minds, here's a video trip made in 1964, just as the Strip started to get rock and roll, and one made in 1967, right in the middle of the party. The YouTube user who posted these also has sixties-era videos of Hollywood Boulevard, the Miracle Mile, and the Farmer's Market.
