Chicago loses another good rock club

SHARE Chicago loses another good rock club

After this weekend’s shows — Supernova, Cooler by the Lake and Dr. Chow’s Love Medicine on Friday night and Apollo Heights and Papillion on Saturday night — the Windy City rock scene will say goodbye to the Note, Wicker Park’s second most high-profile rock club (after the Double Door, located just across Milwaukee Avenue).

A devastating loss? Not quite, since the room always had a bit of a sterile vibe, despite the best efforts of recent bookers MP Productions (otherwise plenty busy with Reggie’s, Ronny’s, South Union Arts and, eventually, the Bottom Lounge). But the loss of any underground venue is definitely worth noting — if you’ll pardon the pun.
