Locals Only: The Habitat is back

This week's music news for locals includes the return of a music venue, a fundraiser for Thomas Yearsley and more

By Peter Holslin
Blues-rock duo Little Hurricane are getting ready for a monumental U.S. tour. Drummer C.C. and guitarist / vocalist Tone are selling most of their possessions to raise money and have bought a trailer that they’re going to customize. In December, they’ll take off on a “slow tour,” during which they’ll stop for two to four weeks in cities across the United States, including Austin, San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, Denver, Nashville and Chicago. “We’d like to get to know and appreciate the local music and venues in each city, and learn something from the culture,” they said via e-mail. They’ll play a farewell show at Bar Pink on Saturday, Nov. 27. The Silent Comedy’s Joshua and Jeremiah Zimmerman and jazz singer Miss Erika Davies will also perform.

The Habitat, the Golden Hill house/venue that’s been dormant for a year, is hosting shows again. Indie-rockers Cry For Us Black Swans will play there Sunday, Nov. 21. Go to the venue’s new website, habitathouse.org, for updates.

Bohemian Rap City, the weekly rap open mic, will no longer be held at Kadan Club. “We are in the process of moving it to a new venue, and it will be on a Saturday night now,” host Miki Vale says.

San Diego Sports Arena has changed its name, again (anyone remember the iPayOne Center?) to Valley View Casino Center, The San Diego Union-Tribune reported last week. According to the U-T’s report, the name change is part of a City Council-approved $1.5-million deal between the San Pasqual Band of Mission Indians and AEG Management San Diego, which runs the arena. Despite the name, the arena won’t actually become a casino.

The Rocketz, Lady Borgia & Boudoir Burlesque, The Palominos and seven other bands will perform at a fundraiser for Thomas Yearsley, bassist for The Paladins, at 4th & B on Sunday, Oct. 24. Yearsley was hit by a train in August; proceeds will help pay for his medical bills and time off work.
