Best Reason to Celebrate the End of the Universe - 2002
Club Townsend Closing Party
It may be the end of an era, but club kids, circuit boys, and their friends will certainly still celebrate the closing of this late-night landmark, known internationally for its Saturday event, "Club Universe." The lease is up, and it's time to move on in the name of SOMA progress. To mark the occasion, the staff is bringing back the best talent from the last 10 years. Some scheduled performers include Motörhead, Cyndi Lauper, CeCe Peniston, and Dead or Alive. Everything will culminate with the "End of the Universe, Last Hurrah," when the doors will open on July 6 and remain open until the last straggler leaves the building. Longtime attendees and die-hards are expecting the "Last Hurrah" to last more than a few days.
