If things goes right, Station 4 will reopen in 6-8 months, but there is no guarentee that it will ever reopen due to the price of what it would cost to fix.
I was some of my all time favorite bands there, I have done so many interviews there, I've played there. This is a real punch in the gut right now.
As far as upcoming shows all i know is that Summer Slaughter has been moved to The Cabooze in Minneapolis. Other than that, I believe every other show will be moved or canceled.
That sucks man, I'm sorry to hear that. I think everyone here has that favorite little club of theirs that's has that one little thing that should be a dealbreaker, but it isn't and the place is flipping awesome anyway. For you I guess it was Station 4 and the heat, for me it's Slim's in SF and its goddamn support beams haha.
