The Lexus dealership that made a splash in Escondido when it opened in 2009, and again last year when the Cohn Restaurant Group agreed to open an eatery on its third floor, said it plans to hold more live concerts.

The business said it has applied to amend its development permit with the city to allow for amplified music, something the business currently doesn’t have.

Through temporary permits, the car dealer hosted several live musical concerts last year, including folk singer Rita Coolidge as well as several shows hosted by local radio station KPRI-FM.
