Giovane's closes in Salinas, which means one less venue for live music.

The New Year opens with some sad news: Giovane's, the Salinas pizzeria that hosted a number of live music shows in 2009, has been shuttered.

Owners Randy and Sarah Young e-mailed a simple statement Sunday with no specific reason for the closure. Here is the e-mail:

Just wanted to let all of you know that Giovane's has officially closed.
Thank you for all your support.
We do appreciate it.

Randy and Sarah Young

The closure leaves only a few live music venues open in Salinas, particularly those that pull in and are geared toward younger audiences.
