Well, heck. Not only are Sadlack’s days numbered, but Raleigh is about to lose yet another music room where some key events in the Ryan Adams “Losering” story happened. The big music hall at the Berkeley Cafe will be no more after June 30, closing to make way for a tobacco shop (and no, that is not a typo).
Well, at least the adjoining cafe space is staying open, and it will continue doing live music. But it will have less than half the capacity of the music hall, which has a legal capacity of 200 and comfortably holds tons more than that. I’m bummed. Check the story on it here.
