We haven't seen you in awhile

Hey, how's it going? We haven't seen you in awhile. You should swing by the Amsterdam and say hello to your old friends. We'll be here all weekend.

We will be closed Thursday night, January 6th

We will be closed this Thursday night so we can attend the memorial concert at Club Dada for our friend and co-worker Frankie Campagna, also known as "Frankie 45." We hope that you will join us at the memorial and share your memories of Frankie. We will be open again at our regular schedule on Friday.

Here's some information about the memorial:
The doors to Club Dada will open on Thursday night at 7 p.m. with a DJ set from DJ Bad Holly, who will spin until the stage show begins at 8 p.m. and again throughout the night, in between band sets.

At that point, bands will perform 20-minute sets at the top and bottom of the hour for the remainder of the evening.

Here's the lineup, with set times:

8 - Leg Sweeper
8:30 - The Double Downs (featuring members of Spector 45)
9 - Missile
9:30 - Here Holy Spain
10 - The Phuss
10:30 - The Marfalites
11 - Barry Kooda Combo
11:30 - THe BAcksliders
12 - The American Fuse

There's no official cover charge, although the door will be asking for a suggested $10 donation, all of which will go toward the Deep Ellum Community Association, per the family's request.
Visit the Dallas Observer for more details. You can also view the Facebook entry for this event by clicking here.
