Despite his reputation as a fast-living, hard-drinking, law-breaking heartthrob, few people realize Jim Morrison was actually a singer. Break on through, light a fire, and love yourself two times with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get two tickets plus a $20 food voucher to Classic Albums Live: The Doors LA Woman at Viper Alley in Lincolnshire (a $60 value). Choose between the following shows:
- Saturday, March 19 at 8:15 p.m.
- Sunday, March 20 at 8:15 p.m.
Classic Albums Live takes every hook, cranny, crackle, and pop of the world’s greatest classic-rock albums and meticulously recreates them live on stage. Uniting seasoned professional musicians and golden-throated club singers in a mission of authenticity, Classic Albums Live rocks entire seminal LPs from start to finish, finally giving audiences the chance to catch shows that they missed due to band break-ups, moon landings, or simply being in utero.
Picking up where a penchant for unhealthy living left off, these musical mimics are now blowing the roof of Viper Alley with their spot-on recreation of The Doors’ iconic swan song, L.A. Woman. Skilled song-sponges have channeled every strum and humbucker of Robbie Krieger, the dexterous drumming of John Densmore, the key-seducing smooth moves of Ray Manzarek, and the potent passion of Jim Morrison. From the bluesy blowout of “The Changeling” all the way through the dreamily atmospheric “Riders On The Storm,” this note-for-note, cut-for-cut, rip-roaring reenactment gets Mojo rising without police intervention.
The newly designed, sleek and stylish Viper Alley is the perfect place for the return of the Lizard King, as the venue’s superior acoustics allow every note and grain of poetry to resonate. Those with late-era Jim appetites can buffer their bellies before or after the show with $20 worth of gourmet delights at Viper Alley’s Reverb Kitchen. The menu reverberates with delicious small-plate riches, such as sweet thai chili wings ($9), multi-cheese stromboli ($10), and bacon and buttermilk blue-drizzled viper chips ($7). Although the doors of perception are always open, the doors of Viper Alley don’t open until 7:30 p.m.
