The New Velvet Lounge

Posted By on 07.27.06 at 04:42 PM

The "soft" opening of Fred Anderson's new Velvet Lounge takes place tomorrow night, Friday, July 28, with a sextet led by drummer Isaiah Spencer, who played the final sets at the previous space. The old club on Indiana closed back in April, and although an official "grand opening" is planned for the new location at 67 E. Cermak the weekend of August 10, Anderson says he wants to get the new location up and running to work out any kinks. He'll be featuring music five nights a week, including the famous Sunday jam session--currently led by saxophonist Greg Ward--but he says once the club is running smoothly he hopes to feature music every day. The calendar on the club's Web site hasn't been updated yet, but Anderson says it will be shortly.
