Each Note Secure posted the rumor earlier and then got confirmation from the owner.
After more than thirty years in continuous operation as a music and arts venue under the ownership and operation of Ross Raleigh, the Southgate House will host its last show on New Year’s Eve, December 31, 2011.
“While we are deeply saddened to close 24 E. Third Street, it’s been a great run and it’s been a great privilege to be the steward of such a grand building all these years,” Raleigh said. “There have been many great memories made here, but the history is in the people and the music, not just the building, and the show must go on.”
The owners hope to find a new location for the venue.
Southgate House was definitely one of my favorite venues to go to when I lived in Ohio, and it’ll certainly be missed in the region.
