Cambridge, Mass., is going to be minus a venerable music venue come mid-September. House of Blues has announced the sale of their Cambridge location, throwing already scheduled concerts into a spin.
The venue will close on September 14, and thus the previously booked events will shut down with it. Although there is the possibility that some shows will be moved to other venues, nothing has been confirmed yet. Ticket holders can receive refunds at the point of purchase.
Affected shows include Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra, Robert Walter’s 20th Congress, The Bomb Squat Feat. Jen Durkin, Paranoid Social Club, Ari Hest, Dan Bern, Clumsy Lovers, Willie Porter, and Hot Tuna.
“The sale of our venue in Cambridge is a business decision that does not at all affect our commitment to the Boston area,” Dolf Berle of HoB said. “We have been in the Boston area for over 10 years and we will continue to have a very strong presence there.
“We are also actively looking for alternative creative spaces that will have the look, feel and scale that House of Blues fans have come to expect.”
