I think you probably ought to show. If you don't and you end up in default it will be harder to do anything...

Your demurrer is probably improper. You better show up. The court will probably advance the date and give you an opportunity to file an answer. Good luck.
My answers are for general information only. They are not legal advice. Answers assume California law. I am licensed in California, only. Answers must not be relied upon.<br> <br> Legal advice and counsel must be based on the interplay between specific exact facts and the law. This forum does not allow for the discussion of that interplay. My answer to any specific question would likely be different if that interplay were explored during an attorney-client relationship. <br> <br> I provide legal advice and counsel during the course of an attorney-client relationship only. The exchange of information through this forum does not establish such a relationship. That relationship is established only by personal and direct consultation with me followed by the execution of a written attorney-client agreement signed by each of us.<br> <br> The communications on this website are not privileged or confidential.

So that legal rights are not lost for failure to timely take appropriate action and because I do not provide legal advice or counsel in answer to any question, if you are an interested party you should promptly and personally consult an attorney licensed in the appropriate jurisdiction for advice and counsel.

Show up, and if you have a witness that the notice was tacked to the door and you weren't there on the 23d, have them come along.
You should appear in court and inform the judge of improper service. Also remind the judge that you filed a demurrer. You will have your day and opportunity to speak just explain everything to the judge. Good luck.
