Photos: R.I.P. Frederick's Music Lounge


Fred Friction, "proprietor and figurehead of the late, great Frederick's Music Lounge," as Christian Schaeffer writes in this week's RFT, has been busy in the basement of the Iron Barley in South City.

Schaeffer writes:

"Friction recently began booking shows in the basement space at the restaurant Iron Barley. Dubbed Fred's Six Feet Under, the space currently hosts live music on Friday and Saturday and promises an intimate venue for fans of local talent."

We've posted a slide show of Friction's former haunt, to accompany the story about his new digs.
