Who Killed Bauhaus Show?

The band's first local performance in seven years was canceled "because of major safety issues," says Maurice Luque of the SD Fire Department. The concert would've been at 4th & B last Wednesday, November 2.

"They were in the middle of major construction work," says Luque. "They had big trenches in the floor covered with plywood. There were open walls and no water supply to the fire sprinklers."

Luque says the fire marshal intervened on Friday, October 28, and forced the cancellation of a recorded dance-music show that had been planned for that night. The night before, Digable Planets moved from 4th & B to 'Canes.

"They were still putting up drywall, and there were pipes sticking out of the wall," Bauhaus bassist David J said on FM-94/9. His band learned of the problem the morning of the show, when roadies arrived to set up. "Because it was at the last minute, we couldn't find another place to play."

4th & B general manager Ray Johnson said tickets would be honored at a December Bauhaus show. John Branigan, the band's agent, did not comment on the new date.

Meanwhile, an insider says that the California Theater, on Fourth Avenue and adjacent to 4th & B, will be renovated and included in a 22-story structure. The 2200-seat venue was used for concerts until 1989.
