The Phantasy Nightclub, a Cleveland institution that once hosted concerts by the likes of Nine Inch Nails, the Ramones, Iggy Pop, the Pogues, the Damned, the Psychedelic Furs, the Cramps, Motorhead and the B-52s, will close after 45 years with one final concert.
The veteran Cleveland post-punk band Death of Samantha [pictured] will perform, and the local punk act the Floyd Band will reunite for the show as well.
A Facebook post
about the gig says there will be a special “mystery guest” too, and the club’s owners will give away Phantasy memorabilia too, including four of the theater's chairs that date back to 1915.
In addition, a DJ will spin tunes by the many of the bands that have played the club over the years.
The show takes place at 8 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 2.
