AMSD Concerts moves to a new venue

Shows now being held at Our Redeemer Lutheran Church

By Jeff Terich
smoking1 An inside view of AMSD Concerts’ new venue.

AMSD Concerts is moving to a new venue. Carey Driscoll, organizer of the concert series—whose initials stand for Acoustic Music San Diego—announced via email in December that no more shows would be held at the Normal Heights Methodist Church. As of Dec. 23, AMSD secured a new location for the series: Our Redeemer Lutheran Church (1370 Euclid Ave.) in southeastern San Diego's Ridgeview-Webster neighborhood.

Driscoll says he learned in July that he might have to move AMSD. 

"The new pastor [at Normal Heights Methodist] is making changes to seating that just wouldn't work with our concerts," he says. "He wanted us to stay there, but... after months of waiting and waiting, it became obvious that it wasn't going to work out."

When Driscoll announced that AMSD was in need of a new venue, Dan and Sylvia Herman, a pair of regular attendees, approached him with the idea of moving to Our Redeemer and even spearheaded the initiative to make it happen.

"We were not only referred to it; the ball was carried on our behalf by a couple who's been coming [to AMSD] through the duration of the whole concert series," Driscoll says.  

The capacity of the new venue is roughly 250, Driscoll says, and the first show there will be a Guy Davis performance on Feb. 7.
