Unless you were online before last night’s farewell show at Northsix, you were left standing out in the cold. The club’s website posted this comment:
**WE REGRET TO ANNOUNCE THAT, FOR REASONS BEYOND OUR CONTROL (ConEdison disconnected power to the building one day too early), TONIGHT’S FINAL NORTHSIX SHOW HAS BEEN CANCELED. WE APOLOGIZE FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE TO THOSE WHO PURCHASED TICKETS AND, ESPECIALLY, TO THE BANDS THAT SO GRACIOUSLY AGREED TO PLAY OUR LAST SHOW.
So ConEd actually did something EARLY for once? The venue tried to (unsuccessfully) move the show next door to Galapagos. Oh well, sometimes you go out in a burst of glory, but usually this is the way a club ends: with a whimper.
