Cafe Bourbon Street, one of our town's hubs for experimental rock, punk and hip-hop, has been mysteriously closed for most of the month of May. Several weeks' worth of shows have been canceled while club management "fixes up the place," leading to some concern about whether doors will be open again in time for Tuesday's monstrous Mudhoney concert. (For more on why this is such a big show for such a small club, check my preview.)
Booking manager Lou Poster assured me yesterday that the show will go on. He couldn't disclose what's been keeping Bobo's doors closed this month, nor can he promise that the bar will be back to business as usual after the show. But he said Bourbon Street will be open from 5-9 p.m. Monday to sell Mudhoney tickets ($20 each) and the show will happen Tuesday night as scheduled.
Grafton and Cheater Slicks will also perform.
