Adam "DJ AM" Goldstein is still in the hearts and minds of Los Angelinos and tomorrow we celebrate his birthday while helping a great cause. AFEX and Dim Mak will be having an event tomorrow, Thursday, Mar. 29 at Dim Mak Studios featuring numerous DJs that had the honor of calling DJ AM a friend.
A suggested donation of $10.00 at the door will get you into the event with all proceeds going towards the DJ AM Memorial Fund that helps kids fight drug addiction.

We at The Scenestar hope that Etta James is in a better place following her fight with dementia, hepatitus C and leukemia that she lost today in a Riverside hospital. Etta James will always be remembered by us through her music and thankful for her to share her art with the rest of the world. R.I.P. Etta James.
There are already groups on Facebook getting together tonight to send off The Blue Palms at The Music Box before they reportedly close down for good this Sunday. This is unfortunate to hear being long time patrons of the bar where we would get a get a drink, some food to eat or just relax before a show at The Music Box. We wish The Blue Palms well and want to thank them for being part of our live musical experience should this really be their last weekend of existence.
Warpaint is hitting the stage once again next month but this time to play for a cause. Haley Butcher's two favorite bands were Warpaint and The Growlers with both bands visiting her in her last days while battling MDS before she passed away on Monday, Nov. 7 at 3:20 p.m. Now Warpaint will play Haley's "dream concert" in her honor at the Galaxy Theatre on Friday, Dec. 2 along with TRMRS plus special guests.
The Scenestar is sad to report the passing of one of our favorite artists. Amy Winehouse was found dead today in London at the age of 27. The five time Grammy winner last made a Southern California appearance at The Roxy Theatre and Coachella 2007 in the Gobi tent on Friday. Amy Winehouse cancelled shows at the Wiltern in 2007 and was denied a work visa when booked to headline Coachella on Saturday in 2009 which also included a scheduled performance at that year's Grammy awards. She still appeared via satellite but was replaced by M.I.A. at Coachella. More details will be posted regarding her passing as we get them Scenestar readers. R.I.P. Amy Winehouse 1983 - 2011.
