WED 11/26: Abbey Lounge FINAL Show

"The Last Blast"
Feat: Acrobrats, Auto Interiors, Jay Allen, Coffin Lids, Curses, Konks, Muck and the Mires, Spitzz, Sprained Ankles, Tampoffs, Triple Thick
at Abbey Lounge, 3 Beacon St, Somerville (Inman Sq)

They seem to have had a combination of problems that led to this point, but the Abbey is closing in a few days, and tomorrow is the last show. It was the site of many great rock shows -- ones that I heard with my own ears as well as the tales of awesomeness.

They're going out with a bang at least. I'll put up a list of Wednesday (and beyond...) stuff later, but I can't imagine any other bar I'd want to be tomorrow night for musical and sentimental reasons. This is great line-up of bands that have, on many nights, given CPR to "Rock" on that stage. (I'm also sad when a dive bar closes.)

Hey -- the night before Thanksgiving is like an extra Friday! The tentative schedule:

12:45am: Triple Thick
12:15am: The Konks
11:45pm: The Coffin Lids
11:15pm: Muck & The Mires
10:45pm: The Tampoffs
10:15pm: Spitzz
9:45pm: The Curses
9:15pm The Acrobrats
8:45pm: Auto Interiors
8:15: Sprained Ankles
7:45pm: Jay Allen
If you want to read more about it, you can read the blog entries on their MySpace page or this (one of many) thread(s) on The Noiseboard.

If you're one that will want to ensure your drunkenness 'til the bitter end, keep in mind there is a chance this crowd will drink everything behind the bar. Just offering my opinion...
