How does one say what needs to be said when they can't find the words to say it? Well I guess you just say it right?. Here is the deal. I have been searching for the right words to say for the last few weeks. But word is spreading fast and I need to face the truth finally. As of Jan 1st Downtown Music Hall will be closed. I could explain to you all the who , what , where and hows but that is too long and complicated of a situation. The thing that you all need to know is that I love you all and this has been the most amazing adventure of my life. Literally all I have went into DTM. But no one can do such a thing alone. Thank you to the countless fans, bands, friends , family and everyone else that lent a hand, painted a wall, built a side room or donated their time to work for free, Thank you to all the employees that have been there to hold me up and show love and support even when I had to cut your hours or promise to pay you on another night. Your dedication has been a savoir to me. Thank you to all the old schoolers for not turning your back on me after the owner change. I respect you all more than you will ever know most of you were the ones that I looked up to and wanted to be like when I was growing up in the music scene. Without your support I would of lost it a long time ago. I know you all feel very connected with DTM and I hope that you can come and celebrate one last time with us on December 21st. I would love to thank you all in person . So here we are guys the time has come for us to say last call one more time. As much as it hurts me I am doing everything I can to not let it destroy my spirit. I hope that you all can still show support for my efforts in the music scene. I will be taking a very small break to focus on getting my health on track and then I will be back doing what I love more than anything in the world .. booking shows, promoting bands and trying my best to build the best local music community in the world! ... I love you all so very much seriously y'all are my family.
PS we are having a farewell fest week starting Dec 17th and ending Dec 21st ... Dec 21st is already booked but if you are interested in playing one last time let me know via private message and I will do my best to allow everyone the chance to say goodbye one more time.
Also Dec 28th is the final day that anyone can come and be at DTM so i will let you all know details but I would love to have anyone that wants to to come and say goodbye.
also feel free to send me a message if you have any questions I will do my best to answer address your concerns or whatever you might have on your mind.
