The Hard to Find to Close

Word hit the streets today that November 8 will be the last hoorah for The Hard to Find Showspace, out in Goleta. (And with the billed act being San Jose/Seattle’s Xiu Xiu, it’ll be quite a send-off.) As one of the only all-ages venues currently existing on the South Coast, it will be sorely missed. Owner Josh Eymann provided a thoughtful note as to why in his sayonara email, and we are trying to get his permission right now to post it here.
