Silk Rhodes, Ava Luna, Macula Dog, 999Reversus, and Cal Fish were supposed to play Trans Pecos tonight. The bands are still playing but the show has been moved to "961 BROADWAY (ABOVE MR. KIWI'S)," which some of you may recognize as being... Market Hotel! That makes this the "FIRST SHOW AT THE NEW AND IMPROVED LEGENDARY SPOT."

While going just to check out the new and improved venue, which has been closed for nearly five years, is certainly reason enough, it's also Ava Luna's last show for "a long time." $10 at the door, which opens at 8 PM. UPDATE: This show is small and private.

Market Hotel's been tweeting updates (like the pic above) on the re-opening process. If this show means they're officially back or if it's just a one-off while they continue to complete the process remains to be seen.
