We're continuing to hear that the restaurant/bar/music concert space that is Tangier in Los Feliz is having some financial troubles and may be going out of business. Whether that is true or not, what we do know is that it is currently in escrow and if that goes through, it remains to be seen what the news owners do with the place.

Despite that, music shows booked a few nights a week by The Fold, are discontinuing after this week. "I would love to continue putting on shows in the venue in the future, but it's been too unstable for too long to keep inviting people to play there," explained promoter Scott Sterling. "So for now I am taking a break from Tangier, and refocusing." Sterling has booked hundreds of shows at the venue bringing in well known artists such as Nouvelle Vague, Ed Harcourt, Keren Ann, Matt Costa and The Bird and the Bee.
