Little Hamilton is officially dead and has been stripped for parts. Our around 4 year tenancy is up in June, but flooding due to about 20 leaks in the roof that the landlord doesn't want to fix has meant that our place is super super toxic and gross and moldy and we've cut down the pa system and are in the process of deserting.
That said - a couple of particularly not-quite-as-burnt-out people are signing a lease in the next couple days for a roughly 1500 square ft room that, while far from perfect, has a working roof and central heat and air. It's not Little Hamilton - it can't be, location-wise, but it will be something new in the same spirit - making a space for DIY shows - be it punk shows, theatre shows, art shows, speakers, etc. Details will be shared on the little hamilton facebook page once that space is named and ready to go - probably mid-June, hopefully.
The past few months have proven to be a tumultuous stretch for local venues. We've seen Glenn Danzig's House close its doors and Murfreesboro institution Red Rose die a painful death. But we've also seen the birth of Marathon Music Works and gotten word that The Stone Fox will open in July. Hey, I've even heard some hot goss about the potential resurrection of a certain underutilized East Side haunt ... but I'll have to keep that under my hat for the time being.
Keep an eye on Little Hamilton's Facebook page — and keep the other eye here on the Cream — to hear more about Pink & Co.'s plans for the forthcoming space. The saddest part of all of this (but not really)? I may never again get to use my image of Little Alexander Hamilton.
