City Attorney attends nightclub lobby launch

Among the nightclub industry boosters gathering Thursday afternoon to launch a new lobbying group was a man who has made more news by shutting clubs down, City Attorney Dennis Herrera.

The names included on the California Music and Culture Association’s Board of Directors are some familiar ones in The City’s nightlife industry in that several have fought very public battles with regulating groups such as the ABC.

And there’s one name that should be familiar to anyone who has been following the controversy over the San Francisco Entertainment Commission. Terrence Alan, who was an original member of the commission and recently left citing health reasons, is listed as the new association’s secretary.

Alan, if you recall, was actually the landlord of one club that Herrera sued to shut down.
