Sadly I must report that Lakeside Lounge is closing at the end of April. Empire Beats featuring Camille Atkinson will play the final date of our residency in the Aloha Lounge this coming Tuesday April 17th at 9:30. If you’ve never been, this is one of your last chances–162 Avenue B at 10th Street. No admission, cheap drinks, last chance.
This great article really sums up the situation with Lakeside and NY real estate in general:
“,,,There won’t be any closing party, but the bands on the club calendar will be playing their scheduled shows. Ambel plays the final show at 9 on the 30th. Before then, stop in and say goodbye to a quintessential New York treasure.”
So sad to have to say goodbye to another great venue. Here’s a some dark, shaky, sexy footage of Empire Beats playing at Lakeside earlier this year. Peace.
