The Smell, L.A. DIY Institution, Receives Demolition Notice

The Smell is a Los Angeles music and art space that's hosted affordable, all ages shows since 1998. HEALTH, No Age, Ty Segall, Mika Miko, the Babies, Ponytail, and tons of others played at the institution. A 2009 DVD features 10 bands performing at the venue; the venue is featured on the cover of No Age's Weirdo Rippers (below). Today, the venue shared the below photo of a notice that was posted to their door, which reveals that a company has apparently filed paperwork to demolish the Smell. Pitchfork
