Fun news from Steve Lewis today: Despite much speculation that Paul Sevignys planned music club might happen in the ACME Underground space, Sevigny and Nur Khan are teaming up with Don Hill to operate his eponymous music club. Its the sort of gritty but dance-friendly space thats perfect for the team, though it sounds like they plan to strip away at least some of the grit. Were adding 5 bathrooms and seating, were going to fix it up, says Sevigny, who presumably knows the venue well as a member of the noise-rock outfit A.R.E. Weapons. The bathrooms alone will be an epic undertaking.
Though Don Hills (now approaching its third decade of existence) enjoyed a revival back when the MisShapes threw parties there a few years ago, it has lately fallen off the scene. Were looking forward to seeing whether Nur can give his old home Sway (around the corner) a run for its money.
