On the heels of the purchase of San Francisco nightclub Yoshi’s in June has come the announcement that the venue will not be hosting any more jazz concerts. The venue’s new owners real estate developer Michael E. Johnson, says he plans to move away from the restaurant’s Japanese food identity as well, aiming for something with lower price tags to attract a broader audience. The club still plans to program a variety of musical acts.
