The original House of Blues was built in Cambridge's Harvard Square and financed by Dan Aykroyd, Jim Belushi, River Phoenix, and Aerosmith, among others. That historic musical landmark may have closed, but its spirit led to more than a dozen venues carrying its name across the country. Our House of Blues, the one on Anaheim, situated in Downtown Disney, celebrates its 20th anniversary tonight. And though the House of Blues chain, purchased by Live Nation in 2006, became a little more corporation, a little less rock and roll over the years, they still know how to throw a good party. Headlining the birthday bash is SoCal favorite '90s punk band Face to Face, who also have something to celebrate: their eighth studio album, Three Chords and a Half Truth, released just last month.
