City shuts down Coe concert

As country music singer David Allan Coe was set to take the stage
Friday evening for a concert at Cosmic Music Hall, a new venue on
Superior Street across from Foster Park, city officials stopped the
show due to building and fire code violations.

Harvey Hevenor, owner of the music hall, said Friday he has filed a
lawsuit against Kokomo because of the problems he's had with the city.

"Basically they're blackballing me," Hevenor said, after police
swarmed into the hall located at 400 W. Superior St., and told
everyone to leave.

"It would have been one of the best things in Kokomo," Hevenor said
of the music hall. "I had people from Michigan, Ohio, Tennessee and
Illinois coming in for this."
