Santa Monica Pier Can Host More Than Live Music
Yes, it can. This harkens to the issue we discussed recently. Of course, changing the location of the show can make a big impact on success, and there’s just not a cooler place than the Santa Monica Pier.
Here’s my one quibble: Why does Martin Fleischmann say, “What we’re trying to do is create a destination for locals on the pier,” and then talk solely about how “people here need a place where they can gather in large numbers for music.” I can think of a non-music act that’s had more success than anybody using the Santa Monica pier as a live entertainment venue. It’d be great if the thinking here got a little broader before plans get locked in.
