Kristin Murphy/WireImageAt least two of The Doors' three surviving members are set to take part in the fifth annual Sunset Strip Music Festival, which will celebrate the legendary Los Angeles band with a variety of performances and other events. Guitarist Robby Krieger will be playing a special show with founding Black Crowes guitarist Rich Robinson on August 17 at L.A.'s Viper Room club in conjunction with the festival, which runs August 16-18. Krieger and Robinson recently have been collaborating in a side project called The Roadhouse Rebels.
The same night as Krieger's gig, Doors keyboardist Ray Manzarek will be a special guest at pioneering L.A. punk group X's concert at the Roxy. The show will feature X performing its entire 1980 debut album, Los Angeles, which was produced by Manzarek.
The 2012 Sunset Strip Music Festival kicks off with an invitation-only, all-star Doors tribute concert at the House of Blues. A lineup for the event has not yet been announced. Other artists slated to participate in the three-day fest include hard-rock groups Quiet Riot, The Offspring, Marilyn Manson, Black Label Society and rap acts RZA and De La Soul.
A percentage of the proceeds raised by the Sunset Strip Music Festival will benefit the Impact **** and Alcohol Treatment Center, a Pasadena, California, facility that aids people struggling with substance abuse.
