While scrolling through Facebook late last night, I came across some unfortunate news. A post from the Gas Lampe Music Venue announced in a post that they would be closing for good on July 9th. They talked of the renovations in Downtown Des Moines and stated that the Gas Lamp building was next up to be renovated and the club would not fit in with the renovation plans. Plus, they mentioned how they had not recovered from life post lockdown.
According to the Facebook post, Gas Lamp will last be open for business on July 9, 2023, which coincides with the 80/35 Music Festival. Thanks for the memories, Gas Lamp!
