Malibu native Kathy Escobar-Harvey has plans to reopen the Malibu Inn as Casa Escobar at The Malibu Inn, according to reports. Escobar-Harvey already co-owns Casa Escobar, a Mexican-style eatery, in Westlake Village.
Cameron Wellwood, who is part of the Malibu-based band the Harsh Carpets, sent out an email blast this week, encouraging locals to attend Saturday night's concert, writing:
"THIS SHOW WILL BE THE LAST LIVE MUSIC SHOW AT THE MALIBU INN...EVER!! Saturday, August 31st. This will be an all day and all night rock n roll extravaganza! IT IS A MUST SEE AND MUST ATTEND EVENT IF YOU WANT TO BE A PART OF LOCAL MUSICAL HISTORY!!"
Performances will be by:
- The Harsh Carpets
- Cisco- Cameo appearance
- The Diamond Light
- 27 Miles
- The Record Company
- Strange Native
- Adam Orourk
- Mark Knight & The Unsung Heroes
- Karma Dealers
While local bands believe their time may be up, Escobar-Harvey told the Malibu Times this week she has plans to continue live music, but that she will no longer employ concert promoter Matt Diamond of Diamond Lane Entertainment.
