"All good things must come to an end..." or so says the title of a bulletin just posted on the Annex House's MySpace page.
We held back Good Friday a bit to bring you this breaking news. We haven't heard back from anyone at the house yet, but the message is pretty to-the-point. You can bet we'll bring you more of the story as it develops.
Here's the announcement, continued after the jump:
The Annex House has come and gone. Things did not end how we wanted, but it is what it is. We will be moving out of the house this weekend. I'd like to give a HUGE thanks to everyone who has ever stepped foot into our lovely home. Bands, artists, friends, strangers, bums, etc. Because of yall, our house was much more than a physical structure.
On that note, the only thing that is coming to an end is that physical structure. The shows and spirit of the house will live on else where. I have the opportunity to book shows at a few different clubs/venues around town (and hopefully adding more to that list). Every show will be billed as "Annex House presents." So don't write us off just yet. Keep an eye on our page and bulletins as I'll still be using this myspace to promote these shows.
If you are associated with a club/bar/venue and would be interested in hosting an "Annex House presents" show, please shoot me a msg here or email me. Also, if you would like to have a show(s) at your house/loft, and just don't know how to go about getting bands, please ask. I'm happy to help, as I want to see the DIY/house scene in Dallas grow.
In the meantime, get your ass to some shows and support the music!
