Limbo in limbo
July 25, 2013 - Bill Ackerbauer
If you follow the local live-music scene, you may have heard the bad news that Limbo Bar & Grill has had to shut it doors because of a major equipment failure.
The Limbo is one of the only establishments in the area that regularly brings in touring acts. The bands and solo performers who've appeared there in recent years have been impressive and eclectic. If it weren't for the Limbo, folks around here would have to travel at least as far as Albany to catch many of these punk, metal, alt-country and rock groups.
Personally, I've been honored to serve as an opener for a couple of the acts there, and I think it would be a shame for the Glove Cities to lose this venue.
Lori Davis, the Limbo's owner, says the bar's two main beer coolers died at the height of our recent heat wave, and the cost to replace them is steep. She's had to cancel several of the acts because she can't do business if she can't serve her customers cold ones. (Trust me: I've tried room-temperature PBR, and it isn't appealing.)
Lori has asked folks to give her a hand and donate to her beer-cooler replacement fund. If you have a few bucks to kick in, check out this page on the bar's website, which makes it easy to donate (and she's offering some incentives): Limbo Bar & Grill.
