After we learn that music booked by The Fold at Tangier is going on hiatus as possible new owners buy the well-known Los Feliz bar/restaurant, we are also hearing that The Malibu Inn has new owners, which is apparently affecting the music venue. Butch Walker posts this bulletin (not linkable) on MySpace:
A legendary bar down the street from my house called The Malibu Inn is closing its doors (sad) due to new ownership. This Saturday the 6th is the final night that anyone will ever play there!! I have seen some legendary bands play this place and it has a massive history in Malibu for hosting some of the best shows of all time. I gotta go pay my respects to T. I think Taylor from the Foos is gonna go play with a cover band or something. I might stand at the side of the stage, foaming at the mouth to get up and play until they let me.
Malibu Inn's website is currently down and no one answered the phone to immediately respond. More to come...
