    This venue, as some of you may know, is one of the most wonderful and unique concert venues in Los Angeles. It is a phenomenon, a singular hallmark of Hollywood, and it is very likely closing its doors (but only as far as the location-- it will relocate!) in a month. It's also really been my home during this whole musical journey...
