Show Information:

It is possible this show may have happened in late 86; however all 3 bands discussed in the quote below (assuming it is actually talking about a single show) put out albums in mid 1987.

The Cathouse Hollywood, California
1986 to '93 then again in 2001. The Cathouse was opened in 1986 in Hollywood to be a dance club that played rock and only rock. A friend one day asked if they could do a record release party at the club and play live. The band played and everybody dug seeing a band at the Cathouse. It didn't hurt that the band was Guns N Roses. Soon after Faster Pussycat played and put a song called "Cathouse" on their debut album. These 2 bands got huge and helped the Cathouse go with them. Next band to play was Janes Addiction. Soon the guys in Aerosmith, Motley Crue and Motorhead started showing up. It became the home to many huge bands and the hip place to hang at. They would wear Cathouse tee shirts in the videos (Guns n Roses Paradise City) and promote the club in interviews. When the movie the 'Decline of Western Civilization 2 - the Metal Years' wanted to capture the rock scene they did a whole segment on the Cathouse. Also this was the home to a LOT of surprise shows: Guns n Roses, Faster Pussycat, LA Guns, White Zombie, Alice Cooper, Motorhead, Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, Tool, Primus, Black Crows, Megadeth, STP, Danzig, Blind Melon, Suicidal Tendencies - on and on. Others tried to duplicate the Cathouse formula but there never ever will be anything like the original.
