Lounge On Elm Street Gets Liquor License Back In Time For Weekend Shows

The Lounge on Elm Street finally--FINALLY--got back its liquor license this morning, just in time for tomorrow night's Parade of Flesh-billed Fun Fun Fun warmup HEALTH/Times New Viking show and Saturday's Sierra Bravo Productions-billed Off With Their Heads/Smalltown punk party.

"Oh yeah, it's been a long time coming," said co-owner Glenn Jackson earlier today, taking a break from cleaning up and doing some touch-up painting. Two months, to be exact, since the venue's license expired.

The club is already committed to shows for the next few weeks, including next Saturday's show with Wu affiliate Killah Priest, but Jackson hopes to throw a couple of free shows--possibly including recent Rob Viktum collaborator and tourmate Mr. Dibbs--sometime soon to help build awareness that the club is back in full force.
