Ah, oh well

The Gypo is awful these days, I noticed they did up the basement in Fibbers recently or at least since I was last down there.

Lafayette is grand even times its not a particular night as such kinda has indie/mainstream rock playing which is imo more tolerable than your run of the mill boozer. Cassidys only a stones throw away too.

I'm just saying closing for renovations a week before Halloween, the 'Christmas' of the rock scene, with bands booked in is not a good sign.

I could be wrong.

Yeah, you were right. Seems it has been sold and will be reopening as something else.

Shame all the same. A Cassidys style spot to come, I'd imagine.

How many times does this have to be asked? Yes! Go and check it out for yourself for confirmation.

No that's fair enough

However 5 or 6 times a year a random metal night is advertised there with a random DJ leading people to believe it's gone rock/metal again

Only one way to find out for sure - forget what people say and go have a gander for yourself.

I don't go in there very often any more but whenever I do there is usually good music playing on the jukebox and plenty of rock and metal to choose from.
It's not as busy as it was in it's heyday by a long stretch though and it is expensive.
