Reach The Nth Power At The Prophet Bar, Celebrate M3CCA’s Album Release At Deep Ellum Art Company And Check Out Some “Made For TV” Art At Kettle Art Gallery.
The Prophet Bar is about to get a lot busier.
Why? Well, as we reported yesterday, The Door, Prophet’s sister club, is going to be closing and moving at the end of December. Its rent was doubled and it just doesn’t make sense, according to management, to keep it going.
Now, it’s not all bad news, as there’s a chance The Door will reopen in the blooming Cedars neighborhood. And as it prepares to close, management over there will be working to book some really cool farewell shows. Right now, we know of Hawthorne Heights and Oh Sleeper.
Once we know about the rest of those farewell shows, we will let you know ASAP. But in the meantime, there’s today and the following list of cool happenings this Thursday night. — Obed Manuel
