Saturday night marked the much ballyhooed reopening of Santa Ana's newest entertainment hot spot, The Yost, and featured San Diego band Unwritten Law as the headliner for its maiden re-voyage (click here for slideshow.). If you're not familiar with the controversies surrounding the former Spanish- language theater and cultural center, built in 1912, read Music Editor Lilledeshan Bose's feature story from last week and get caught up.
Though bands were scheduled to start playing at 8:30, people were still standing in a long line at 9:30 which snaked from the front of the building into the nearby parking lot. Rumor had it that fire inspectors were still signing off on last minute safety issues. But after a short delay, under the watchful eye of Sana Ana's finest (some on horseback) people started trickling through the doors and the show got underway with no further significant hiccups.
