Phantasy Catches Fire

Posted By on Wed, Jul 15, 2009 at 8:37 AM


The Phantasy Concert Club caught on fire last night, spreading through the venerable Lakewood club, which has hosted everyone from the Jesus and Mary Chain to Soundgarden over the years.

The fire started in a nearby thrift shop around 7:30 p.m.

No one's really sure how much damage was done to the building, but it did take firefighters at least 30 minutes to bring the fire under control.

We'll have updates and pictures for you soon. —Michael Gallucci
