Long Beach All ages Venue under threat by LBPD

by jizzeb Thursday, Jan. 01, 2004 at 12:20 PM

Koo's cafe is the only real all ages venue in Long Beach, CA since the close of the Long Beach infoshop over a year ago. Koo's is now under threat by the Long Beach Police Department of being closed down. Support independent art and gatherings in Long Beach!! Come to the LB city council on Tuesday, January 6th at 5pm and show your support!!

Dear Koo's Supporters,

We need your help!

Koo's has been called to a public hearing at

Long Beach City Hall regarding the issuance of

an entertainment license that would allow them

to have live music performances in their

location at 540 E. Broadway in Downtown Long


Due to erroneous misinformation that has been

reported to the City of Long Beach by members of

the vice police department, the entertainment

license that Koo's was granted back in July 2003

is facing the possibility of being denied.

It is important to the fiscal health of Koo's

that they be allowed to continue to hold evening

all-ages music performances, as this provides a

steady source of revenue to cover the costs of

keeping their doors open.

That said, it is important to note that Koo's is

much more than a music venue. Koo's is an art

center that is home to visual art exhibitions,

plays, workshops, and any number of programs

that local artists (visual or performing) may

propose. It provides a location where artists of

all disciplines can come together for a sense of


So, please join us at the City Council Meeting

on Tuesday, January 6 at 5:00 p.m.

Critical Mass! We want to fill the chambers with

as many bodies as possible to visibly represent

to the City Council the kind of support Koo's

has from the community. We need artists,

musicians, actors, dancers, business persons,

neighbors, kids, parents and grandparents to

show up at the meeting and create a presence.

To get to free parking

at the Long Beach City Hall parking structure:

From the 710 S., take the Broadway exit,

continue on Broadway a few blocks and pull into

the entrance on the right, just past Chestnut

and just before Cedar.

>From elsewhere in Long Beach, head west on 3rd

St. After you cross Cedar, turn left on Chestnut

then left again on Broadway. Pull into the

parking structure on the right, just before


See MapQuest for general location of City Hall:




To the Council Chambers:

From the lot, head south towards the tallest

building. If you enter on the North side, keep

to the left and you will come to the council

chambers. If you enter on the East side, keep to

the right to find the entrance to council


We would also like as many people as possible to

write letters to Dan Baker's office. His email

address is: His

mailing address is: Dan Baker, 2nd District

Council Person, City of Long Beach, 333 W. Ocean

Blvd., Long Beach 90802. His phone number is

(562) 570-6684.

Please join us after the meeting at 6 p.m. for a

get-together at Utopia, corner of 1st and

Linden., and thanks in advance for your support!

Please forward this email to anyone you think

would be interested.
