Back Alley Social

R.I.P.

I wasn't positive about the Whisky Bar actually closing till just today. Now, in its place at 303 W. 5th St., is the Back Alley Social. DJ Richard Gear will be playing there from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. and it's absolutely free. So, there's something you can do with your Thursday evening folks.

Oh gossip gossip!!

On the subject of things closing down, I heard there was mucho-drama going on at the Black and Tan during sxsw, causing them to shut it down early.

Have you heard anything?

Well, I won't lie I do know a little bit about what went down there. I don't think it was too dramatic, and they got in a couple of unofficial SX shows in before closing at the end of March. There was apparently going to be a closing down party, so maybe something did happen to impede that during southby. As far as I know, though, it simply closed because the new owner let the place get bought out by the Rusty Spurs next door who are going to change it completely.
