Wow! This was a surprise to me. The San Diego concert venue is closing it’s doors. Appears they had some legal and financial issues leading to their demise.
4th & B has been a cool and quirky place to see some major acts over the last 18 years. The theater was not very big and a great place to see some of the biggest acts in the world, although maybe not what they once were by the time 4th & B was able to book them.
I remember seeing guitarists Joe Satriani and George Thorogood, metal acts Queensryche and Ronnie James Dio and many local bands at the downtown venue. They also hosted all type of events including comedy and hypnotists.
What is next for the building that once housed a bank and became a San Diego music icon? Be great if someone could tale it over and keep the music alive!
A shame when these halls and clubs that have got so much personality and history close down. Usually because some soulless venue has taken all their business away.
I agree there are not enough cool venues around, it is sounding at least initially that the owners might have dug their own hole.
Och, that’s a shame. There’s a great venue in Glasgow called the Barrowlands that hardly gets used anymore and it’s such a waste. Great sound, atmosphere and history. Sounds like you’ve seen your share of amazing gigs at that place!
