A Farewell Habit Songwriter Night
Here is a message from the event host Matt Ellis
The time no one ever wanted to come, has. Our beloved corner coffee shop, Abbot’s Habit, is closing for good. Times are a-changing in Venice, for sure, but we’re not going anywhere without a fight…and a celebration. The music nights at Abbot’s were legendary, and we’re going to put one more on the books for one more night of great memories.
Please join us on June 23rd for an evening of music by an All Star line-up of all of your favorite Venice locals that made the Abbot’s scene what it was. Paul Gronner’s spaceblanket, Matt Ellis, Paul Chesne, Blue Eyed Son, Amilia K Spicer, Kim Michalowski, Tom Freund, Steve McCormick, Scotty Passaglia, Holly Long, Mikel Farber, Kira Lutes, Crash, and you never know who else might sit in!
There will be laughs, tears, hugs, memories shared, but above all, there will be the music of Venice. This is going to be one for the books, People! … The grand finale of our Habit…Abbot’s!
See you there Friday, June 23rd, 7-11 p.m. 1401 Abbot Kinney Blvd. Venice, CA 90291
