Boston venues can’t catch a break from the big man up above.
Following in the wake of T.T. the Bear’s and Johnny D’s, Fenway restaurant and rock club Church is closing. Sources told Vanyaland that the owners decided to close the venue after reaching a deal to sell the rock club section of the building. The restraunt section of the building will remain open.
Rumors have been floating around for weeks about the future of the Fenway music venue, and it seems many proved themselves true. Ever since the 225-capacity live music room opened in the late 2000s, neighbors in the area voiced their complaints about noise and loitering in the street and parking lot. That, combined with the recent midnight curfew the venue was slapped with this summer, have finally taxed the owners enough.
Church has cancelled all of its upcoming shows. As of now, there’s word they may host a weekend of live music in early October, but no official statement has been released confirming so.
