Another Nyc Venue To Shut

Six months after the closure of legendary New York music club CBGB, another Manhattan gig venue is shutting for good. Tonic, located on Norfolk Street in the Lower East Side, will close on 13 April (07), despite protests by SEAN LENNON and YOKO ONO to keep the venue open. A statement on the club's website says: "After more than nine years as a home for avant-garde, creative, and experimental music, Tonic will reluctantly close its doors on Friday, April 13th, 2007. "We simply can no longer afford the rent and all of the other costs associated with doing business on the Lower East Side. "The neighbourhood around us has been increasingly consumed by 'luxury condominiums', boutique hotels and glass towers, all making the value of our salvaged space worth more then our business could ever realistically support."
