Complex in Glendale Closes Its Doors


Complex, a small 200-capacity bar and live music venue in L.A.’s Glendale, has announced its sudden closure via a post on Facebook.

“It is with a heavy heart that we announce that Complex in Glendale is now closed. This venue was the fulfillment of our lifelong dream to create a space that gave alternative artists a friendly and accommodating space to present their art, and we will miss all of you so much. A majority of our booked shows will be moving to other venues, and all presale tickets will be valid and honored at the new locations. Please follow and subscribe to our longtime partners Church of the 8th Day, Das Bunker, The Elegy Ensemble, and Floorplan Productions for all of their future endeavors. It has truly been a pleasure to serve you, and we hope to see everyone soon when we manifest into our future form.”

The club owned by John Giovanazzi and Mike Guerrero was well known for its variety of diverse shows that encompassed styles as diverse as metal and electronic music.

Complex, which had a Funktion-One sound system, opened in 2013 and regularly featured local and international artists, ranging from the Dillinger Escape Plan to Boys Noize (pictured). It was also home to the popular alternative karaoke night Ground Control.
