Thurs 01.28.10 - Ten Years ago in the last week of January 2000, Alex Hernandez opened Alex's Bar on Anaheim Street in Long Beach, California.
Throw Rag was the first band to play on Halloween 2000, it took a couple of years before the bar got an official entertainment license from the city of Long Beach, in the meantime, Alex's Bar garnered the reputation for being the CBGB's of the West. Over the last ten years a wide variety of national, international, and local bands have played at Alex's Bar.
In this video, Alex and Ms. Jen speak about the beginning, bits in between, and this upcoming weekend's set of 10th Anniversary shows at Alex's Bar.
