All good things must come to an end. And Mohawk Place was one of the good things for sure.
By now, you know the story. There’s no point repeating it. We at buffaBLOG and other news sources (see Donny’s piece in Artvoice and Jeff Miers Gusto write-up) have written fantastic obituaries and have done our best to document the life, legacy and demise of our proud venue. All that’s left now is to celebrate.
Tonight sparks night one of Mohawk Place’s Last Waltz (7pm doors). It’s sold out and if you didn’t get tickets, I feel sorry for you. It’s surely going to be one of those “talked about nights” for years to come.
Here are the bands listed in the order they’re going to play: White Whale, Trailer Park Tornadoes, TMMC, Returners, Bensin, Chosen Ones, Wolf Tickets, Bobo, Irving Klaws. Each of these artists have put their own unique imprint on the stage at Mohawk and you probably recognize most of the names so I don‘t think introductions are necessary. Show starts are 7:30 so get there earlier enough to see White Whale and stay til the very end.
It’s been a long time comin’ and the roads come to an end, but fuck it, let’s keep the train a rollin. See you in the pit.
