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: baker@ci.long-beach.ca.us 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.
