So sad that Motor City Bar is leaving the Lower East Side. It’s depressing to talk about. Yesterday afternoon was the official closing party for the twenty-year-old rock club, but they’ll remain open through the end of the week.
Motor was jammed for the funeral party, so to speak. Grizzled metalheads, punk rockers, and bikers from all over returned to the Hell Square that no longer wants them. A series of bands played short sets for the over-capacity crowd; beer flowed like a torrent; condensation dripped from the ceiling.
