Yet another update which should end all of the speculation on what exactly is going on over at one of our favorite local venues, The Music Box. First we reported that the live music venue would be closed temporarily due to some changes in management and even Goldenvoice who handles the majority of their booking issued a statement that read:
“At this time, it is our understanding that the closing of The Music Box is a short term closure, please be patient with us as we work out the details as they pertain to our previously scheduled shows.”
We felt better once we saw that more shows were being booked to take place in the future at The Music Box. Because why would they extend the schedule if they’re closing for good right? But we just received a couple of photos from a reader that went over to purchase tickets to see Cults on March 22nd. The photos are of the actual eviction papers that are currently posted on the front door’s of The Music Box.
As you can see in the photos the Sheriff’s Department are ordering all debtors to vacate the premises no later than January 31st. That’s less than a week away. This looks like to be the nail in the coffin for the current occupants, but this could hopefully mean that a new renter may be coming in. What is going to happen to the 12 upcoming shows on the venues schedule? We will continue to update this post as the information comes in.
