Jazz Bakery closing its doors

Proprietor Ruth Price says the non-profit music and art venue lost its lease at the Helms Bakery in Culver City and will close there on May 31. She plans to reopen elsewhere, but doesn't yet know where or when. "There's no animosity about this," Price told Pop & Hiss, the LAT's music blog. "The sad, but perhaps fortunate, thing is that we're doing very well. Yes, we feel the economic downturn, but we've had some sold-out nights and things are going well."
