North Park Theatre Announces 1st Show

Folk-singer Rodriguez will headling inaugural show



    The folks from the West Coast Tavern and the Casbah have teamed up for the inaugural concert at the iconic North Park landmark.

    Christening the stage June 3 will be Detroit folk-singer Rodriguez, who rose to fame in the US in 2012 as the subject of the Oscar-winning documentary Searching for Sugar Man, which tells the story of his musical rediscovery by filmmakers from South Africa, where the musician was presumed dead but managed to earn acclaim dwarfing that of his Stateside recognition. San Diegans got a taste of Rodriguez at the Casbah in September 2012, a show covered by SoundDiego.

    The North Park Theatre can host 1,100 concertgoers, with some fans for this event bypassing the $40 general-admission tickets for the $100 Gold Circle Reserved seats at the front of the house, where they will be able to enjoy two complimentary cocktails.

    The show was programmed by Casbah impresario Tim Mays, who will be working with theatre operators David Cohen, Bobby Jones and the Verant Group, who also run the West Coast Tavern just outside the theatre proper.
