On the heels of a wave of band break-ups (Abracastabya, Enemyswim, and StabCrew, to name a few) comes word of a devastating venue failure.
According to a Facebook post earlier today, Dave and Sholanda Cantrell, owners of the Rocket Room, will be hitting the road, and putting the award-winning bar and music venue up for sale.
The post reads: “The Cantrells are moving so that means the Rocket Room is for sale. You can inquire at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our last show date will be Oct 31st. Come give the Rocket some love and buy it already!”
The Cantrells nearly pulled the plug on the venue late last year, but ended up sticking it out until now.
Truly, this is a sad day for rock 'n' roll, or at the very least, fans of dank and dirty rock 'n' roll bars.
