Cheer Up Charlies leaving eastside, taking over Club DeVille space on Red River (celebrate with them this weekend)
Club DeVille RIP. Cheer Up Charlie's East RIP.
The Cheer Up staff writes on 12/30:
As you may have all heard, we are moving from our current location on January 15th. Our last operating night in our Eastside treehouse is January 12th. Today we signed a new lease at 900 Red River St. Although we are incredibly heartbroken to leave the Eastside, we are excited that we will have the chance to keep doing what we love. We hope that you will join us in recreating the place that we all call home. There will be some down-time as we get ourselves resettled. The space that we are moving into needs lots of love, and that is only something that a community can provide. We are so happy to be able to have a new place to go to and to share with you.
Looking forward to our first big blowout at our new space! Stay tuned- we will announce our opening date as soon as we know.
Tamara, Maggie, Charlie, and the Cheer Up staff
This wasn't just because a new space was available though. You might have also heard about the letter they wrote on 12/13:
We have received news that the property that Cheer Up Charlies sits on has been sold, and the new owners have given us notice that our current lease will be terminated on January 15th.
We are currently seeking a new space, and we intend on continuing to grow. When we find our new spot we will continue to play host to the same types of events, free live music shows and all kinds of other fun stuff! We are deeply saddened that it's ending for us at 1104 East 6th St. but nothing is dying. Our rhythm may be disrupted for awhile, but we will keep on dancin'!
We hope that you stop by sometime before January 15 to celebrate with us in what will soon become our former home. Consider the next 30 days more of a celebration of the creative endeavors our current building has housed, than an eulogy. Thank you for hanging out with us for 3 tremendously fun years- it couldn't have been the same without you! We will find a new space and we will let you know as soon as we do! No matter where we end up, we will take the spirit of the Eastside with us. Let's all give this 600 sqft building a proper farewell hug!
We Love YOU,
Candice, India, Brian, Carly, Celesta, Paul, Matt, David, Zach, Dustin, Paul E, Max, Ellie, Tison, Cole, Tamara, Maggie and Charlie
