Music venue the Center announces plans to close

The Center, the midsize concert venue that opened in early 2013, announced Wednesday that it would be closing its doors as of Sunday. The news release, which was posted on the Center’s Facebook page, named the venue owner’s health complications as the reason for closure.

The last scheduled event at the Center, 6425 N. Lidgerwood St., is a Battle of the Bands competition on Saturday. According to the press release, future concerts, which include guitarist Keller Williams and lo-fi legends the Meat Puppets, are in the process of being moved to alternate venues.
