"DJ Monk Had a Stalker"

"DJ Monk had a stalker," said an L5 club regular.

December 11, around 1 a.m. at the downtown venue, a fan during DJ Monk's set (dubbed "Hallucination Before Christmas") was having a little trouble with his personal body space. He stood behind Monk with his arms crossed, just watching. After a while, security asked the bulky fellow to move. "I'm not leaving," he reportedly replied.

"It took six security personnel to 'escort' the guy outside," said a clubgoer, "where they kicked him to the curb."

Visiting DJs need not worry about overzealous fans at L5 any longer. The club will close permanently after New Year's Eve, making way for a Hard Rock Hotel, a 250-room, $100 million development project slated to open in summer 2006.

Also closing this month is the Pirate's Den at 2821 Kettner, middle city's small, kickback old-school hangout. Replacing it is the Kava Lounge, operated by Merge Events (A/C Lounge, Ventana's); DJ Sean Perry will be the venue's house spinner for 2005. For more info, check out www.kavalounge.com.

Club Sabbat has left its longtime venue Shooterz on 30th Street and has moved to Club Montage on Hancock Street, where goth fare will be offered every Friday night through Saturday morning. Taking Sabbat's place at Shooterz will be an event from Club Therapy. Seems Therapy producer Bryan Pollard was going to dub the night "Sabbath" until Brandy Wirtz of Sabbat sent him a cease-and-desist letter with the threat of legal action.

"If I have not received an affirmative response from you by December 25, 2004, indicating that you have fully complied with these requirements, I shall take further action against you," Wirtz stated in the letter.

Pollard has since announced that his Friday nights at Shooterz will be called "Underground."
