Luther Burbank Center Closed Until November

Posted by: on Oct 16, 2017 | Comments (0)

The Luther Burbank Center for the Arts was one of over 5,000 buildings damaged or destroyed in the last week of wildfires in the North Bay, suffering major damage when a firestorm swept through Santa Rosa’s Mark West Springs neighborhood on Monday, Oct. 9.

Today, Oct. 16, the center announced in a press release that all events and performances at the venue have been postponed through Sunday, Nov. 5, as the staff works with authorities to determine the building’s structural safety.

In the statement, the center announced that they are hoping to reschedule as many of the events as possible, and will issue refunds for any event that is cancelled.

The Luther Burbank Center for the Arts is not the only performance venue affected by the fires, and others, like the Blue Note Jazz Club in Napa, are also postponing events through the month. If you have tickets to a show in the North Bay this month, check with the venue for updated information.

In an all-caps explanation about “YOUNGER, MORE ECLECTIC-MINDED POP CULTURE FANS” so crazy over Penguin shirts and Amy Winehouse that they’re “DELVING INTO ALL THINGS RETRO,” Blue Note records has announced the reissue of twelve best-selling titles on vinyl with a bonus CD inside.

Titles include: Cannonball Adderly, Somethin’ Else; Kenny Burrell, Midnight Blue; Dexter Gordon, Go!; Joe Henderson, Page One; Lee Morgan, The Sidewinder; Horace Silver, Song for my Father; Art Blakey, Moanin’; John Coltrane, Blue Train; Herbie Hancock, Maiden Voyage; Hank Mobley, Soul Station; Wayne Shorter, Speak No Evil; and McCoy Tyner, The Real McCoy.

(No Out to Lunch? Tsk.)

The titles run about $20. Truly an idea whose time has come. Oh wait—it already did. Get with it, Impulse!
