Los Angeles Question....

This one's really for my American readers, but also to anyone who knows a little of the LA area....

How far is it between Anaheim and central Los Angeles?

Just noticed that the Sisters are playing a date at Anaheim just before hitting Sunset Blvd and was wondering how far the two cities are between each other? I know they are pretty much merge into one massive sprawling metropolis (or atleast it looks like it on the map) but have a feeling we could be talking about rather alot of mileage between the two?

Any help?

OK, apparently it's 28 miles south of LA. What are transport links like between the two? I'm a non-driver so cr rental is out of the picture (unless I can get a license within the next three months!!! :p)

The scary thing is that Greater LA is about as far across as the distance between Portsmouth and Birmingham.

If you go to Anaheim, do me a favour? Find a few pounds of plastique, go to Arrowhead Pond (hockey stadium) and blow the place to hell. Preferably when the Mighty Fucks of Anaheim are playing someone else I hate, like the Dallas Stars.

Sorry. My Canadian is showing.

Getting anywhere in Southern California requries a car. If you are not considering having access to a car, then my advice would be to forget it and stick to central LA. Taxis are hugely expensive there due to the distance you travel and also highly unrelaible.

WEll I suppose trying to see The Sisters three nights on the trot would be a bit greedy :p

Angus, there is the Metro system http://www.mta.net

The Blue line runs from Central LA to Anaheim but where the station is in terms to your venue for the gig is hard to say. Cab from station to gig area would be expensive and if I remember the Metro shuts down fairly early (it's no London tube) so if the gig finishes early your stuck in luvly Anaheim.

The bus is an option but does take ages!

Hope it helps!

I grew up in Southern California. Those 28 miles often take an hour or more by car, I'd hate to imagine by bus. Traffic on the highways down there is horrendous. I have never taken mass transit in that area but it is not considered particularly reliable. If you have someone who can rent & drive a car that would be the best way to swing it.
