OC Weekly's clubs editor Brandon Ferguson today answers the biggest mystery of the Kelly Thomas death: Who placed the phone call that led to
six police officers beating the homeless man to death?
We haven't heard back from Slidebar (or its owners), but Lit has suffered a few tragedies of their own; their drummer died of brain cancer in 2009. A few months ago, they announced that they're planning to release a new album by the end of 2011, seven years after their latest set. They've gone back to the studio with producer Matt Wallace (Faith No More,
The Replacements, Maroon 5).
