LOGAN SQUARE — The Congress Theater's building violations hearing on Thursday was again continued, putting a scheduled July 5 Marilyn Manson concert in question.

The theater was ordered closed several weeks ago after continued electrical problems on the second floor, as well as construction violations on the first floor.

Thursday's hearing was a continuation of last week's hearing, in which the city said theater owner Eddie Carranza still needed to comply with court orders shoring up the theater's safety.

The issue will be taken up again in two weeks. The future of the Marilyn Manson concert scheduled for July 5 was uncertain.

Neither Carranza nor his attorney for building violations, Demitris Kare, immediately responded to requests for comment Thursday.

Reached by phone Thursday afternoon, onetime Congress Theater manager Jazmine De Natera said she no longer works there.

"I have no idea what's going on over there," she said.

Asked when she stopped working at the venue, she said, "not too long ago."

The Congress Theater Facebook page — which has an image of Marilyn Manson for its profile picture — makes no mention of the concert being canceled, and tickets were still available for purchase on the Congress Theater website as of 4 p.m. Thursday.

Marilyn Manson's management company, Ciulla Management of Hollywood, Calif., could not immediately be reached for information about the concert's fate.
