I heard ~PEARL’S JAZZ CLUB~ is closing on Sunday, April 27th, with Barry Lloyd as the final performance. I couldn’t get a straight answer why it’s closing—it appears there’s something personal going on with owner Kim Nalley. Here’s a letter from Nalley posted on the SF Weekly blog—you have to scroll way down, FYI. 256 Columbus Ave. at Broadway, 415-291-8255.

Also in North Beach, there is a project brewing in the Zebra Lounge space and the neighboring Club Latitude called ~ATMOSPHERE 3~. Someone told me the owners might be from Burlingame. I heard the project is a month out or so, slated to offer entertainment, a lounge, and a pool table. That’s about all I’ve got. 447–459 Broadway St. at Columbus.
