The City Heights rock venue located 3519 El Cajon Blvd. is changing hands again.

The Void held its last show-an alt-lit reading called Now That's What I Call Poetry-on Dec. 16 and then quietly closed up shop, just shy of one year after changing from Eleven last January. However, a few calendar items appeared in the last week on the websites of both The Casbah and Soda Bar for shows taking place at a bar called The Hideout, which has the same address as The Void. And a private Facebook page is now up at facebook.com/thehideoutsd.

Shows booked at The Hideout so far are Warm Soda on March 6, The Casket Girls on March 7 and Solids on March 9.

Details about The Hideout are still pretty thin. The Void's owner, Alex Kacha, confirmed via Facebook message that the club has been sold to "investors" who are planning to remodel the space. However, under terms of the sale, Kacha wouldn't disclose who purchased the club or any details about its future.

CityBeat reached out to Hideout manager Allen Colaneri but wasn't able to get in touch with him by press time. Casbah owner Tim Mays says that after the first few shows, The Hideout won't regularly feature live music. The club has turned over numerous times. Before it was Eleven, it was Radio Room. Before that, it was The Zombie Lounge.
