After coming under new ownership in late 2012, City Heights rock ’n’ roll club Eleven now looks like it’s getting a name change. On Friday, Jan. 11, someone launched a Facebook page for a venue called The Void, located at the same address as Eleven, 3519 El Cajon Blvd. Meanwhile, Eleven’s website has been taken down. 

It’s unclear whether any other changes will come along with the name change. In a text message, Eleven co-owner Alexandra Kacha said she was too busy to talk. Nobody responded to an email sent to thevoidbooking@gmail.com, an address listed on The Void’s Facebook page. A phone number was listed, too, but a woman who answered calls Monday said it was the wrong number. ---

According to The Void’s Facebook Events page, the club has a few big shows set up for the coming months. Skuzz-rockers Blues Control will play with Infinity Dots and DJ Matt Bahamas on Friday, Feb. 15. Lo-fi songsmith R. Stevie Moore will perform with Lake on Saturday, March 2. And Canadian indie-pop wünderkind Mac DeMarco is set to come through on Sunday, April 7. 

Local blogger Scott Pactor broke the news about Eleven’s name change with a brief announcement on his blog, catdirtsez.blogspot.com. He writes that Mario Orduno of Art Fag Recordings will book shows at the venue, though Orduno didn’t respond to phone calls from CityBeat

As CityBeat first reported, Eleven’s former owner, Scot Blair, sold the venue to Kacha and Neil Rajiv Dutta—who operate under the name Kadu Inc—in October. The change to The Void marks the fourth time the club has gotten a new name in recent years; it was once The Zombie Lounge, and then it became Radio Room before becoming Eleven.

Correction: As some readers pointed out, The Zombie Lounge was actually called a couple different names before being called The Zombie Lounge. We've changed this post to reflect that.
