Pulp Live in Fort Lauderdale Closes, Everyone Shrugs
Pulp Live announced last week, via its various social networking pages, that it had closed until the venue "finds a new location." Well, that's always the way closing establishments try to put a nice face on it. The club's web site, as I post this, is totally offline.
We say, good riddance. When I visited recently, the place was empty, the door charge was high, the staff was rude, and the bands played unpaid, without even a free pitcher of water.
The space -- which was grudgingly beloved as the Metal Factory -- has potential, with a nice stage and a good layout. Hopefully someone who actually cares about local musicians and audiences will take it over.
