Rumors are circulating that St. Pete venue Local 662 will be closing in June 2017 to make way for retail.

Details are still unclear, but St. Pete promoter Nick Marcisin wrote this on his Facebook page today.

We Regret to inform you that yes, the rumors are true, The Local 662 will be closing at the end of June !!

This is due to new ownership of the block. Unfortunately, there is absolutely nothing we can do.

I will still be filling some dates up for weekdays and some weekends.

All good things have to come to an end sometime and it has been an amazing decade of awesome shows and good friends. 

Please email [email protected] if interested in setting up a FINAL show here or are interested in some dates. 


RIP TO THE 600# Block <3

Ps , I will be booking at several other places so please be in touch as well. 

I will be also moving forward with work and continue staying in the biz!!

We'll reach out to involved parties, so stay here for updates.
