I am still wondering about if and where the El Vez and Laibach shows will or will not take place.


i'm sure laibach would be welcome at zom-zom's a place to eat where the chant is death, death, death.


...until the sun cries morning?

This just in my email:

November 5th, 2004



For Immediate Release
Contact: LeeAnn Weimar


First Avenue May Re-Open


Minneapolis – An agreement with the bankruptcy trustee John R Stoebner, may get First Avenue’s doors open after abruptly closing Tuesday, putting 120 people back to work.



In a meeting that took place this morning, Steve McClellan and Jack Meyers met with Stoebner and struck up an agreement that may get the venue up and running again as early as Saturday, November 13th.



701 Ventures LLC, the company that will run the new business, is set to acquire the name First Avenue along with all of the clubs assets after the former owner The Committee Inc. filed Chapter 7 bankruptcy earlier this week.

The arrangement still needs approval from a bankruptcy court judge, who is scheduled to hear the case at 8:30am Friday, November 12th.

YAY!! My "Seventh St. ENTRY" hoodie I've wearing in the morning chill has prompted a lot of positive comments this week....everyone asks if I was on staff at First Avenue. No, it was just my home-away-from-home!

So I dropped off a song my band recorded about First Avenue at Radio K today and the receptionist started crying after looking at the cover art I did for it. Maybe they'll actually play it.

Aw... I wanna hear your song Trailer Diva! Cool! I haven't been listening to the K much lately, guess I'd better turn it on.

I really hope this comes to pass! I am not going to let myself get too excited till I see it happen though!

Yea, I heard that as well. He'll be back. I'm still hoping for the Laibach gig to happen somewhere. Not to mention the long awaited Rifle Sport reunion.

In the Rifle Sport thread he posted:



The show may still happen minus one Rifle Sport, as CJ will be in Puerto Rico building a bathroom for Rich Americans.

However, we will be rescheduling a Rifle Sport show possibly early next year.

Meaning, of course, Brick Layer Cake, Kontrol Panel & Flour (and Arcwelder).

Kthxbye
