Sacramento's storied Hangar recording studio to close doors

By Carla Meyer
cmeyer@sacbee.com

The Hangar, the legendary Sacramento studio housed in large a warehouse space, will close its doors after 23 years.

Owner John Baccigaluppi, whose Alkali Flats space has served Sacramento acts from Far and Deftones to Sister Crayon and Sea of Bees, and out-of-towners from Kanye West and Wild Flag (the latest musical project from "Portlandia" star and ex-Sleater- Kinney guitarist Carrie Brownstein), said the Hangar will close in March.

Baccigaluppi and his business partners will remain in the recording business. The Hangar will move to a house in Marin County and Baccigaluppi and producer Chris Woodhouse will open a new Sacramento studio in the General Produce Building near the Hangar.

Baccigaluppi said running the larger facility no longer is economically feasible. He discusses the Hangar's storied history in this blog post.

The 50-act lineup also will include Furthur (featuring Phil Lesh and Bob Weir of the Grateful Dead), the pop band Train, folk-rocker Ben Harper, country favorites the Zac Brown Band and veteran R&B and gospel singer Mavis Staples.

BottleRock, which appears to be on a par with festivals such as San Francisco's Outside Lands, will be the closest major festival to the Sacramento region and will highlight two bands with strong Sacramento ties. Alternative band Cake will perform, as will the Black Crowes, the long-running blues-rock group that now counts Sacramento's Jackie Greene among its members.

The festival also will offer wines from 60 vintners, beers from artisanal microbrewers and food from dozens of Napa Valley restaurateurs.
