Jason’s Upstairs Bar, the premier live music showcase nightclub in Hudson, is closing at the end of the month.
A posting on Jason’s Facebook page on Tuesday declared:
“So folks…it’s true. Jason’s is closing its doors at the end of the month. It would seem that the power of one neighborhood individual’s talent of complaint has robbed us all of our right to party, see shows and in some cases, even make a living. It’s a fact when your mother told you that one rotten apple could spoil the whole basket.”
In the meantime, the shows scheduled for this month at Jason’s will go on as planned, including:
Plans are also currently underway for a “final-night, keg-drainer, all-day bonanza” at the end of January. Stay tuned to Nippertown.com for details as soon as they are announced.
In recent months, Jason’s Upstairs Bar has hosted such acts as Eclectic Method, the Akron Family, American Music Club’s Mark Eitzel, the Defibulators and Chris Pureka, as well as such local favorites as Mother Fletcher, the Last Conspirators, Disposable Rocket Club, Lunic, the Blisterz, the Charlie Watts Riots, Blackcat Elliot and more.
Owner Jason Schermerhorn has also promised, “And lastly, Jason’s will be back in a new form shortly.”
