r.i.p. - thanks.

i want to start by saying thanks.

thanks to all the great people who have worked at the cafe,
helped out, played, supported, sold tickets, put up posters,
bought a ticket, added us on myspace and spread the word
about our little venue that could.

but couldn’t.

we’re done. we don’t want to be. but we are.

the church has been forced to buy out of their lease of the
cafe and effective immediately, they’re out.

so we’re out.

the church that formerly leased the cafe has been amazing.
they belived in us, encouraged us, worked around us,
cleaned up after us, repaired stuff, and have generally been
some of the nicest people we’ve ever known. they hate that
they’re losing their cafe, but there’s no way around it. it’s
been a big part of their church for almost a decade.

so now it’s time to rip the bandaid off. no more shows at the
cafe. no more us. for a while it looked like we’d get to do a
few farewell shows, but it didn’t work out.

we might come back someday as something else somewhere
down the line, but for right now, here’s what we have:

newsong underground - 859 south 800 east

tickets are $10 in advance. if the cafe has meant anything to
you, please buy a ticket. we’re flying denison in beacuse
he’s that amazing.

we’re proud of what we did and we couldn’t have done it
without you.

chad, megan, lawrence, paul, sami, asher,

Thank you for putting on great shows! The cafe will be missed. If it weren't for the cafe I'd would have missed out on some talented bands.

Still looking forward to Denison Witmer glad that one is still on.

I am really sorry to hear that the cafe will be closing. I've seen some amazing shows there. Thank you (and the church) for all of the hardwork and wonderful opportunities.
