Well... since nobody else is saying it, or they're in denial, or they're part of the group of people who believe that it can be saved from "Da Man", or part of the group trying to get it located to a new place without any financial responsibility whatsoever, I guess, as usual, it's up to me to say it:
So long Artistic Armory!!
Yeah, seems like "Da Man" was up to his usual illegal activities and conspired to shut the venue down, and when I say shut it down, I mean the place was sealed up, locks changed, and everything in there is held up by the Landlord now! LOL I hope the bands that practice there didn't leave any equipment behind. Boooooooo. Well, I guess when you let a bunch of bands full of little kids drink in the parking lot, and then just put it out there for everyone to see, thinking there wasn't going to be repercussions because of it, I guess that's what's going to happen. Oh, that and not paying your rent. ;-) In the end, after the Court battles were waged and lost, the place is sealed, locked down for the time being, so yeah, where are all those acoustic troubadours and Beardcore bands going to play at now you ask??? Well, at the "new, improved, Artistic Armory 2.0", which already has a GoFundMe page (click hereto check it out and contribute) to help them move to a new, better, bigger venue where this sort of thing, you know, being shut down by "Da Man" and all that, is guaranteed to never, ever, happen again. Things will be different. They'll get it right the second time for sure! LOL
And remember - you heard it from an "elitist, old Punk" first... hahahaha
Outliving all your Bands, Venues, and Ideals, since you were a Kid.
See you at the Vegascendents gig tomorrow night. :-)
