Cakeshop New York City Lower East Side

Cakeshop Blowing Out Candles On Business?

Cakeshop New York City Lower East Side

Cakeshop, one of the core venues to hear indie rock may close its doors soon. So far its owners have 53 days left to raise about $50,000 to pay its taxes. Donations to save Cakeshop are being taken via PledgeMusic.com.

Times have been hard on the boulevard of Ludlow Street. Just up the block from Cakeshop, Max Fish had issues. Their future looked bleak when their rent was raised two years ago. Now Cakeshop’s facing similar woes, along with noise complaints. Max Fish soldiered on, getting their lease renewed. Look at ’em now, they’ve got a new bar open in Asbury Park, NJ. Hopefully things turn around for Cakeshop the same way, getting their plans in motion to keep the music playing on Ludlow, and become an artist destination online. Their reputation putting on acts like Vampire Weekend speak louder than any music blog, so respect the architects. Throw some change Cakeshop’s way. There’s even a little incentive for you. Click here to see what they offer to their loyal supporters.
