A now defunct bar
who catered to the indie music
scene in Chicago
. The Lounge Ax
attracted hundreds of great independent bands over it's 12 year history
. Now is gone and dead due to bastard landlord
s and neighbor
s. Supposedly, the Lounge Ax
will be relocating, but as yet they not found a new place. Let's all hope.
There was a cd released a couple years ago to help the Lounge Ax deal with it's defense and relocation costs. It is ironically entitled "The Lounge Ax Defense and Relocation Compact Disc". It is one of the better compilations you get for Chicago/Louisville post rock type music.
