Uptown Bar enters its final week of shows

itemprop

The death of a friend is never an easy thing, especially when it's a slow agony, one you can see coming a mile away as it lumbers inexorably towards its final singularity.

For the Uptown Bar, the fabled Hennepin venue that has been the nursery of local music talent for decades, that singularity will fall on Sunday, November 1, when the bar will woefully pull its plug.

But until then, they're going out with an old fashioned Irish wake, a hurrah of final shows that will do final justice to the bar that's housed so many for so long.

Head below the jump for info on the final shows, and for more adroit metaphors about death and resurrection.
