Live at the Rrazz Temporarily Shut Down By Entertainment Commission, Hopefully Will Reopen in March

The former Rrazz Room signage at the Hotel Nikko.

We noted last week that the new incarnation of the Rrazz Room in the mezzanine space at 1000 Van Ness, now called Live at the Rrazz, had mysteriously closed and canceled a bunch of performances. The owners have now issued a statement that this was all due to "a possible sound issue," and it was the Entertainment Commission that forced them to "pause" performances while the issue is investigated and rectified. They say the pause will only last until March 5, and they've already rescheduled some of their performers, however it's not every day that the Entertainment Commission shuts down a venue like this. We actually wonder, given how quickly the place opened after relocating here in January, if all the proper sign-offs had been secured to begin with... Stay tuned. [Earlier]
