Any hint on what this book store is or what "Archie's Lounge" whatever that is? That sure is random. So how did the god's of music end up in some random trailer on the other side of Earth?

Book Soup is a big indie bookstore, right on Sunset Blvd. It's an institution for LA people of a certain bookish type. And its interior appears in too many movies to mention, usually with stray meetings of people (a recent episode of Californication), or people doing readings there. It's a very "LA" place, and it sort of makes sense that Brian, who has a house in LA and loved that place for so long, would select that place to do a book signing. I am sure he's browsed the shelves there before.

Lots of rock institutions on the Sunset Strip, too, of course -- there was the big Tower records before that chain went under, and just down the street is Whiskey, where everyone from the Doors to Van Halen to Motley Crue made their names.
