Cake Shop

As you know, LES music venue Cake Shop has been busy raising money to help keep their doors open. Good news! They've officially hit 100% of their goal, and today announced that "we can't tell you how grateful we are to everyone for their support. Now we can square up with our landlord and sign a new 10 year lease to keep the music going on the Lower East Side. Stay tuned..."

Upcoming shows at Cake Shop include Tiger Waves on August 10, Splash on August 11, and a Brian Jonewtown Massacre post-tour, post-Webster Hall-show party on August 25 with The Vacant Lots, Rosco (Sterling Roswell of Spacemen 3, The Darkside), Flavor Crystals, Chatham Rise, and DJ Frankie Teardrop of BJM ($10 or $5 with BJM Webster Hall ticket stub, 21+, 11pm-4am).

Magic Castles open for the Brian Jonestown Massacre at Webster Hall earlier that night. Tickets are still on sale.

suprised no one commented on this - that's great news...that place has been around for a while, and it's always been a good fixture in the community.

it's more or less the only gritty, but quality venue around there now no? sucks that the downtown music scene is almost gone.

I'm happy they reached their goal. I like how things like this show you that anything is possible if you set your mind to it. Most people would of given up and let their doors close. Not these people. They kept on trying. Good for them.
