So long Double Door.

I wrote this a few days ago but figured it was worth sharing here too.

I admit I spent a lot of tike thinking this wouldn't happen. But the owners, staff, and even Alderman did all they could do—but nothing could stem the shortsighted lunacy of the building owner Brian Strauss.

I feel like I've lost a limb. It is impossible to overstate just what a huge role Double Door has played in my musical history in Chicago. I hope they get the new spot up and running in Logan Square ASAP, and look forward to a new era in the club's history, but nothing will ever be able to completely replace the magic of the original space.
