Partners Mum On Hawthorne Dispute

A dispute has arisen between Portland, Ore., concert promoter Mike Thrasher and his partners in the local Hawthorne Theatre, but nobody’s talking.

Thrasher recently filed suit against Nicholas Yannariello and his father, claiming the younger Yannariello pocketed company money, failed to submit proper tax filings and nearly doubled booking fees at the venue, according to Courthouse News Service.

Thrasher’s suit reportedly seeks dissolution of the company, $114,000 in reimbursement and an order to return the booking fees to normal and bar Yannariello from canceling or refusing to book Thrasher’s shows.
