Damn Shame: Monterey Live closes its doors

File this under "that sux." Monterey Live, site of some great personal memories along with the breeding/breaking ground for a lot of great local and touring acts, shut its doors as of Sunday night. The last show was reportedly Sunday night, according to my editor. Trying to get some word from the folks over there, but in any event, this is a sad day for local musicians and fans. Monterey Live was a great venue with good sound and atmosphere, one of the few places that hosted a nice variety of musical styles, from punk to hip-hop to cabaret. I personally have had some great nights on that stage and watching shows. I might have to put together some sort of top memories list together, but that place rocked. If this is indeed the end, RIP Monterey Live.
