- The Church on York has been ordered to stop holding concerts after a city Planning Department official denied the Highland Park venue the necessary permits, citing a “disregard for the law,” according to the L.A. Times. But Graeme Flegenheimer, who leased the 101-year church with plans to turn it into a performance space and club, says he will keep fighting to remain open.
