NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Legendary Lower East Side rock club Sin-é closed its doors for the last time on Sunday, April 1st, ending the legacy of the venue that helped launch the careers of David Gray, Sarah McLaughlin, and Jeff Buckley.
In recent times, the 225-capacity venue has hosted such prominent acts as the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Damien Rice, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, and The Walkmen.
The club’s final show featured New York acts Hymns, Bow Thayer & the Perfect Train Wreck, and Amanda Kravat.
“Fittingly, these acts follow in the Sin-é's tradition of giving a voice to emerging musicians while celebrating the energy of the NYC scene,” Sin-é said in a news release.
A message on the club's Web site said simply: “It's been a great run and we would like to thank all those who have supported us through the years. To all the bands, booking agents, staff, friends and patrons… Thank You.” –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
