Since it opened 10 years ago today, the Coach House has drawn hundreds of thousands of pop music lovers to a barn-like room tucked behind a tire store in the back of an office park, miles away and worlds apart from the Sunset Strip.

A resident who had sought permission to open a private supper club called Tiffany's II at the five-story Harbor Tower and Marina at 3333 W. Coast Highway has withdrawn plans for the club indefinitely. The proposal was to go before the Planning Commission last week but was withdrawn without explanation by the applicant, Edward Martinez St. Clair.

Alternative-rock fans who like their surroundings as grungy as today's prevailing noise-guitar styles might feel a bit out of place at the Meadowlark Restaurant. But the county's newest original-rock club had a promising--and raucous--debut Saturday. L7, Olivelawn and Wulfpact gave the Cypress venue its first taste of alternative original bands, drawing a full house of more than 300 fans during the course of the evening, according to promoter Chris Martin.

The owners of a trendy jazz club claim in a civil-rights lawsuit that they are being harassed and discriminated against by their landlord because their club attracts many African-Americans. Randell Young, co-owner of Randell's, located on Hutton Centre Drive in Santa Ana, said he filed a lawsuit Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court after months of enduring harassment from Nansay USA, based in Santa Monica. Eric Yokeno, the owner of Nansay USA and Randell's landlord, declined to comment Tuesday.

The Thunderbird nightclub, a frequent target of neighborhood complaints about noise and rowdiness, has revised its entertainment format and is asking city officials allow it to continue operating. On Monday, the City Council will hear final public testimony on whether the Lido Marina Village club should stay open. The council is to vote on the issue Oct. 9. The club's predecessor, Bacchus, which closed last spring, had drawn similar complaints.

The booking wars some had expected to erupt when the House of Blues opened earlier this year in Anaheim so near the Sun Theatre have given way to a kinder, gentler music scene, a change that's led to an unprecedented range of live music choices for Orange County music fans and bands.

Since gaining fame as the host of his own early '90s MTV video program, "Totally Pauly," comedian-actor Pauly Shore has practically become synonymous with the stereotype of the zoned-out party dude. It's an image that's been perpetuated by a string of low-budget and low-brow feature films, from 1992's "Encino Man" to this year's "Biodome." In each of these broad, teen-targeted comedies, Shore has played the role of the terminally obnoxious Valley boy.

If Jeff Tweedy's songs were entirely about himself on "Being There," the terrific new album by his band, Wilco, he wouldn't be anywhere. A recurring theme that lends this 19-track, double-CD release some of its shape and cohesion is the nagging feeling that developing an obsession for playing rock 'n' roll is like falling into a deep hole.

For more than two years, it was a jazz bastion in Orange County, presenting such top Southern California players as Ron Eschete, Wilton Felder, Tom Kubis, Stephanie Haynes and Joe Sample six nights a week in a casual, friendly atmosphere. But this week, without much fanfare, the lights went out for the last time at El Matador, the family-owned Mexican restaurant and jazz club in the Huntington Harbour Mall.

If you think making a hit record is hard, try running a successful concert club business in Orange County. Clubs booking mainstream name talent in the county number exactly one. Open 13 years, the Coach House has survived where so many others have failed, although no one has figured out why. The South County club isn't within 10 miles of a city with more than 100,000 population. Buried in an industrial park, there isn't any drive-by business.
