Over the decades from rock to soul, from punk to metal, the Whisky A Go-Go has been host to a who's who of rock & roll legends. This film tells their story intertwined with the story of the building itself. Made in conjunction and with the full cooperation of the Whisky's owners, the Maglieri family, it features exclusive interviews with bands, artists, managers, roadies, fans, journalists and staff. By documenting stories from both sides of the stage, together with music, archive and rare performance footage compiled over 40 years, 'A Shot Of Whisky' shows their experiences are inseparable and intertwined with those of the venue itself, while also presenting a unique view of the history of music in America that went on to shake the world. So sit yourself down and pour yourself a shot... of Whisky!
