Potential bad news for live music fans. BoweryBoogie has the scoop that the Living Room is set to close at the end of January.
Skyrocketing rents (shocker!) will chase the Living Room from its home these past 10 years on Ludlow.
However! The owners have launched a crowdsourcing campaign to help them fund a move to new space somewhere else in the neighborhood. You can read about their campaign at Pledge Music.
And you can watch this video...
Also, yesterday, The Lo-Down reported that the team behind Piano's (and 7A and Virage) are looking to take over the Living Room's current space for some kind of live music-gallery venture. The group appears before the CB3/SLA committee next month.
