So, all of the cancellations and whatnot of shows we've been tracking are, well, rather expected. However, we just caught wind of something that REALLY makes us concerned for the blizzard/storm that's coming:
POP'S IS CLOSED.
Yes, you read that right: POP'S IS CLOSED.
The venue St. Louisans (and Illinoisians) can always count on to be there for us, no matter what hour of the day, no matter what state of inebration -- Pop's 24-7, for crying out loud -- is closed. On Facebook, the venue gives more detail:
Due to the weather, Pop's will be closed as of 4pm Monday night. We will evaluate the weather Tuesday and make a decision based on that. Yes, it is true, Pop's..... is closed...
I think we can now safely say with authority that Snowpocalypse 2011 is no joke.
