News and Notes: More Venue Comings and Goings


The Trash Bar, which I previously noted would be closing in Williamsburg and moving to Bushwick hung on to its 256 Grand Street location longer than originally planned.  But the venue will finally close its doors there this Saturday, June 27th.  There is no information concerning where or when it will reopen.

Midtown Live

Midtown Live opened last fall.  But it looks like that venue will not continue as a roots and rock n roll club.  Earlier this month, there were only a couple of shows on the calendar and none after this coming Friday, June 26th.  The club’s website is no more and will take you to another club at the same address.  I think this place is toast.

So much for closings.  On the plus side, clubs continue to open in Bed-Sty.

Bar Lunatico

Bar Lunatico has been open for several months.  It presents music nightly, but only one act per night.  It’s located at 486 Halsey Street between  Stuyvesant and Lewis Avenues.

Cmon Everybody

C’mon Everybody is brand new, having opened just a few weeks ago.  It has three rooms: a front bar, a side lounge and a back music room.  I was there a few weeks ago to see the amazing Karli Bruce and her band.  The room sounds great and is very reminiscent of the set up at Crown Heights’ Friends and LoversC’mon Everybody is located at 325 Franklin Avenue between Clifton Place and Greene Avenue and is two blocks away from the Classon Avenue G Train stop.
