    Between the next 2 weeks or 2 years.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    The Music Box tweeted earlier today and Scenestar posted, but just in case you missed it, Angels & Airwaves, The Jayhawks moved to the Avalon and Dr Dog moved to the Orpheum. I'm sure they'll just do GA seats.

    I'm thinking of stopping by the Blue Palms tuesday before Wilco if any board folk want to grab a drink. If it's still there by then, of course.

    The fact that they've only moved the next 3 shows gives me some hope that GV is still in negotiations with the owner. If an agreement is made and they can stick some equipment in there, patch up whatever the prior venue operators took out in < a month then there may be hope of watching Lucero, Cults, shows at the Music Box.

    As negotiations drag out, I would expect that every 1-2 weeks we'll hear additional announcements of a handful of more shows being moved.

    Is there any RECENT news on this venue? After all, Nada Surf is still scheduled to play there in March.

    I don't think Tessa decided to shut down the Music Box. I am sadder about the Music Box closing than the death of Nick and Aaron Carters' sister.

    Maybe it isn't closing after all...Mogwai just got scheduled there. I think it was just temporary. Or at least I hope.

    Goldenvoice must know something about the future of that venue. Maybe its shuttering is a temporary situation!

    I always liked the El Rey, it has a good atmosphere. The Wiltern has a cool art deco design.

    I have taken the Metro red line there quite a few times. They have some weirdos on the subway, but that is part of the charm!

    Wow, I just noticed this. I sure hope this isn't the end for that place. I really like that venue and have had fun times with some of you at Blue Palms.

    My favorite moment there ever:

    I never got the whole NIN thing, but I would understand why they would be enjoyable at that particular venue

    NIN anywhere is great due to Trent being meticulous about sound perfection, from tiny venues like SOMA to arenas like The Pond, I've never really encountered any sound issues with the band performing live.

    "Can't stop the music" was in the marquee a week or two ago. I think it's a sealed deal. Hollywood NEEDS this venue

    They probably have red tape to get through still. But I would think its going to work itself out as the Mogwai show in June is onsale, and will be at that venue.

    FYI, yet another show is getting moved. This time Joy Formidable/APTBS, moved to the Mayan.

    With the number of recent announcements for shows in April/May/June, I hope that GV is closer to an official announcement. It's less than 6 weeks away for the pre-Coachella shows. Enough time to prep a venue??? really?? I'd hate to see Kasabian or The Horrors in a venue as awesome as the Music Box but have it be a horrible experience because of the place is still gutted or doesn't have a well put together sound system. Guess i'll be sticking to the GlassHouse or El Rey shows.

    I drive by it daily. All the doors were opened and people were doing STUFF there. So who knows. Granted, it MIGHT have been a music video shoot. But there was no production, just people working. Lets hope!

    The Fonda Theatre will reopen its doors this week on March 17th with it's first show back featuring Feed Me. All other shows on the venues schedule will go on as planned. Goldenvoice is now the exclusive operator and promoter for the venue
