Hollywood's loss is turning into Downtown's gain.

After the sudden and shocking shutdown of the Henry Fonda Music Box in Hollywood, ticket buyers wondered where rock promoter Goldenvoice would book displaced concerts.

The fear was that many of the shows would be moved to the sterile Club Nokia since it is owned by Goldenvoice's parent company AEG. But Tuesday came the announcement that two of the Music Box gigs would be moved to two of the most beautiful venues in Los Angeles, the Orpheum and the Mayan theaters in Downtown.

Dr. Dog, the psychedelic rock group straight outta West Grove, Pennsylvania, will grace the stage of the glamorous Orpheum Theatre on February 10. And the Brooklyn-based art rockers Sleigh Bells will bring their joyful noise to the Mayan on February 21.

Groups like Blink-182 spinoff Angels & Airwaves, as well as others, are being relocated to the Avalon on Vine, but the fates of some acts originally scheduled to perform at the Music Box have yet to be determined, so don't be surprised if more shows are moved to Downtown venues.
