Chop Suey sold?
I don’t know about you, but this kind of news gives me the vapors: Hannah Levin is reporting on Reverb that Chop Suey has been sold to an as yet unnamed Japanese company. No word on what that means for anything, building- or booking-wise, but considering all of the trouble they’ve been having with crotchety noise complaints, it’s anxious news.
Last night I was talking to an old Crocodile employee who mentioned that the Croc’s building is back up for sale for $100,000 more than what it was originally up for, which seems a little insane, and I’m not sure how well Neumos is recovering from their capacity changes. Maybe everything will turn out fine and I’m just clutching my pearls prematurely, but then, maybe not.
