What’s happening to local music venues?

Word came in today about the fates of two bars known for hosting local music.

The Myth nightclub in Maplewood is shutting its doors and has let its staff go, according to CityPages.

Less clear is the fate of The Uptown. The Minneapolis Planning Commission is meeting to decide whether or not to allow the owners to tear down the bar and replace it with a three-story retail unit. According to the Southwest Journal, sources close to the development deal said the restaurant’s owners were looking for a new location.
