Zebulon L.A. opens this week (pics, initial schedule)
Much-loved Williamsburg club Zebulon closed in 2012 and made plans to relocate to Los Angeles. The new L.A. version of Zebulon, with cafe/dining space, outdoor patio and dedicated performance space, is finally set to open on Tuesday, April 25 at 2478 Fletcher Drive in the Frogtown neighborhood. From LA Weekly:
The team behind the new Zebulon includes Jef Soubiran, Joce Soubiran and Guillaume Blestel, the owners of the original Williamsburg, Brooklyn, location, along with Nolan, Jean-Pierre Plunier and Andy Factor of L.A. label Everloving Records, and L.A. musicians Jesse Peterson and Mia Doi Todd. All of them, minus Todd, sit around a table on the venue’s Frogtown patio on a sunny late-March morning.
“Music coming from [L.A.] is getting a lot of attention in other parts of the world, and there aren’t enough places here to present it,” says Peterson, a guitarist and Todd’s husband. “[Mia] and I both felt like bringing something to L.A. like what they were doing in New York would be very valuable at this point.”

Helping keep the through-line from the original venue to Zebulon L.A. will be Brooklyn’s Endless Boogie who play Tuesday’s opening night with Zig Zags (tickets). Mary Lattimore plays Wednesday (tickets), and Friday (4/28) has Ashley Shadow, Pink Mountaintops and Cairo Gang (tickets). Check out Zebulon L.A.’s initial schedule.
