In the interest
of getting meaty chunks of gossip on the web as soon as possible - and not in
the interest of doing a thorough, well-informed journalistic inquiry into the
matter - we bring to you the news that Bill’s
Bar on Lansdowne Street
has reportedly closed down. FOREVER.
But we didn’t do
a complete hack job. The Phoenix spoke
with promoters and DJs behind the wildly popular Thursday night college drink-lots-and-fuck-in-the-bathroom-a-thon
known as Campus, which was supposed
to pop this week at Bill’s. But since they got notice early Monday that the jam
would not be possible, it’s been moved to The
Middle East (to the rescue once again).
Nobody will tell
us why Bill’s Bar shut down - or maybe they just don’t know - but the rumor
mill is churning something along the lines of: “It has to do with them turning
Jake Ivory’s into a giant Irish pub.” Fair enough; but in that case we wonder
why there are bands booked there through April.
reggae, metal, and all you other sorts of heads weep loudly and figure out
where to relocate your rituals, those still looking to party this Thursday should
log into Facebook and CLICK HERE for info on the Last Campus Ever - to which promoters are allegedly floating free
rides in ice cream trucks. And - not like we need to tell you this - but feel
free to add any rumors in the comment section below…
