Since opening its doors in 1993, The Viper Room has featured the likes of Johnny Cash, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Stone Temple Pilots, Bruce Springsteen, Oasis, Queens of The Stone Age, Courtney Love, Natalie Cole, Elvis Costello and so many more. While we all await the uncertain fate of the world famous club, groundbreaking performances are still making their mark on its beloved stage. Pretty Ugly did just that with a 30 minute alt pop fusion set led by Parker Chrisbens’ soaring vocals.
