Concert to benefit La Paloma Theatre


Encinitas’ best musicians will come together on Oct. 22 for a 7 p.m. Love the Dove concert to benefit the historic La Paloma Theatre.
Concertgoers at the La Paloma that night will get a chance to hear Eagles songwriter Jack Tempchin, joined by Celtic Thunder’s Keith Harkin, anti-folk movement pioneer Cindy Lee Berryhill and local folk luminary Darius Degher.

“From 1928 ‘til today Encinitas has ‘Loved the Dove.’ La Paloma Theatre, a big part of our town’s history now needs a little TLC to help restore it to its grandeur,” event organizer Danny Salzhandler of the 101 Artist Colony said in a news release.

Concert ticket sales will help fund a number of aesthetic improvements to the theatre, according to longtime La Paloma owner Allen Largent, who added that he’s happy to see such strong interest in keeping the cinema alive.

“It’s great that the 101 Artist Colony and the Encinitas community is so enthusiastic to help. It is everyone’s goal to preserve, restore and protect the theatre.”

While cinema is the primary focus of the theater, there is a rich history of musical performances at the La Paloma, which is why the 101 Artists’ Colony, Ruthless Hippies and the musicians are helping out with another exciting concert.

Tickets costs $20 and are available online at or at the door. For more information call Salzhandler at 760-845-8456.
