This week brings us the very last Roots Rock Reggae ever at Motor City Bar. They are closing their doors after many years in the Lower East Side. Hahn Solo and President Carter will be holding it down from 6:30pm til 10:00pm on Thursday night. I’m sure many others will pass through to pay their respects and drop a tune or two. I sure will.
This spot holds a lot of good memories for me, and the closing of the bar itself is just another sign of the massive changes that have happened downtown. I find myself staying in Brooklyn more often than ever before, because Manhattan has lost a lot of its charm for me. But on this night, we celebrate the thousands of big tunes unleashed in one of the last dive bars left in the LES. Forward ever, backward never!
