News bits: Music Box closing (but not forever); Coachella lineup, video by video


L.A. Slush, the new website launched by former LA Weekly nightlife columnist Lina Lecaro, is reporting that the Music Box at the Henry Fonda is shuttering. Read the report here. And Goldenvoice just released a statement:

At this time, it is our understanding that the closing of The Music Box is a short term closure, please be patient with us as we work out the details as they pertain to our previously scheduled shows.

Coachella’s website is revealing bits of the festival’s lineup by posting a video a day. Jimmy Cliff’s video went up today. Previously posted: U.K. NYC rapper Azealia Banks and dubstep dude AraabMuzik. Coachella is two weekends this year, April 13-15 and April 20-22. Monklish has been pretty spot on in her Coachella predictions the past few years, although her last post was in early December. Meanwhile, it was announced today that Coachella’s country cousin, Stagecoach, is sold out.
