The Warehouse District's Trocaderos nightclub has unexpectedly closed, according to reports from several musicians and concert promoters who are now scrambling to reschedule their gigs. Anyone hoping to visit the club will be greeted with a sign on the door that simply says "Done," and the events page on their website reads "THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATRONAGE. Building for lease or sale."
So far management is refusing comment. Chris Riemenschneider points out that Club 3 Degrees, a Christian nightclub just a few blocks from Trocaderos, also shuttered its doors a few months back, leaving only a couple of music venues left on the north end of downtown. Both the Strib and Decider are estimating that there won't be many tears shed over Trocaderos's demise, and I have to agree -- the few times I caught shows at the club, I found the events to be poorly managed and the sound less than desirable in their cavernous performance space. Regardless, it's still sad to see all of these concert venues closing their doors this year.
