Just a note to let you know that there have been a few changes at House of Blues recently, some may affect you if you are booked to play one of our events there.
The first and most noticeable change is that our Tuesday nights will now be called "ListenLocalRadio.com Showcases" instead of Local Brews Local Grooves. That name, established in 2009 by then HOB GM Matt Parsons when we started these beer/music nights, is now a trademarked name that HOB uses for our larger "All Access LBLG" events (also started by we in SD) that they now do at all of the HOB properties across the US. The folks at HOB are concerned that people will confuse "LBLG all access" with the original Tues night Local Brews Local Grooves events. Fair enough.
During the past 6 years if our Tuesday night stage was needed for a private event, etc., HOB would move our show to another stage or another night (lol... back in the day, Matt Parsons would even find us another VENUE if an alternate HOB stage wasn't available). Unfortunately, HOB will no longer be able to accommodate a rescheduling so if you have a Tues night reserved with me, please be advised that there is a chance it will need to be canceled. On the bright side, my new friends at The Brick by Brick are coming to the rescue for a few HOB shows that were canceled in June ... so there's a chance we can move your show there, too, in the event it's canceled.
Lastly and most heartbreakingly, The Kid Shows aren't covering expenses. HOB has been kind enough to let us keep the last three we have scheduled, but after July I'll be seeking alternate stages/opportunities for our rising stars.
Business. Show or otherwise, it's all business and we all know that. I have so much love for the people at HOB San Diego, these folks are family and we're all gonna stick together and make this work. Support local music on Tuesday nights at HOB while you still can, friends. Much love. xo
