demolition double dose

following up on the previous post about possible gehry-designed buildings destined for demolition, this one hits a little harder. sure, its not the original brown derby, and seems to have undergone some extensive renovations over the years, but this is one of those older buildings I'd hate to see go. love the ceiling, love the booths, love the circular bar. would be a much greater loss to LA than gehry's enclosed mall in SM.

strangely, a cursory google search for the coalition "save the derby" that has sprung up results in plenty of articles, but no web site for the group. any further details? post in the comments.

dunia and i will be playing an acoustic show at the derby tomorrow night at 9pm, so if you want to see it in all its glory, come on by.
