Tip o' the cap to a blog reader who passed along this curious Craigslist posting: "staff for indie rock music venue/lounge wanted."
The ad says the venue -- called Antarctica
and located at 5226 Gravois -- is looking for a "bartender, barback, dj, door person and post modern historian." Applicants are asked to submit a mix CD, with the following requirements:
mix cd should contain music in and around the neighborhood of indie
rock/pop. the more unknown the bands/songs the better, but not at the
cost of song quality, i.e. an unknown 7/10 song trumps a well known
8/10 song, but an unknown 7/10 song does not trump a well known 9/10
I emailed the ad, but haven't heard back yet. A Google search of the address
brings up Carpet N More and a phone number that's disconnected when I call. And a few of my contacts haven't heard anything about this. So I turn to you, dear A to Z readers: Has anyone heard anything about this? Is this a real place opening? Is this someone just dying to hear lots of new music? Comment away.
