When the old Rosebud Diner closed, a cry went up throughout the local music scene as the closure marked the end of not just a diner and a bar but also of a live music venue. Plans for the new Rosebud didn't seem to include music, and the stage was gobbled up in the extensive redesign. The place, which is officially "So Hot Right Now," according to the annual Eater Awards results, has been chugging along since mid-September in a blur of pies and barbecue and whiskey — without any indication that music might return.
But now, a post to Rosebud's social media channels announces the good news: Live music does return, and it's happening this very Wednesday, December 3, at 10 p.m. Patrick Dalton kicks the night off, and Lay Low Moon, a local indie-folk-pop band, goes on around 11:15 p.m. No word yet on the frequency of shows or where exactly the bands will be situated.
UPDATE: Owner Joe Cassinelli tells Eater that for now, there will be music every Wednesday at 10 p.m. (except for Christmas Eve), and eventually it'll get added on to Saturday and Sunday brunch as well, but not just yet. And stay tuned for more info on a music-filled New Year's Eve event.
