Posted today via their official Facebook page, Triple Rock Social Club announced that November 22nd will be their last day in business. The bar and music venue first opened in 1998, and is owned by Erik and Gretchen Funk, of Minneapolis punk rock band the Dillinger Four.
There was little information given about the reason for closing, just that November 22nd, 2017 will be their final day. You can read the full announcement from their Facebook page below:
“After 19 years of business, The Triple Rock will be closing after November 22nd.
We are proud to have been part of an amazing time in the Twin Cities Music scene. We have had more than our fair share of legendary performances and events, watched numerous local artists get their start on our stage, and hosted the Minneapolis debuts of countless national acts.
We want to thank all the customers, bands, and artists who have been a part of this place over the years.
Most of all we want to thank our current staff and those who have worked here in the past. We could not have done it without you!
We still have a lot of great events coming up, so come on down and celebrate The Triple Rock!”
The bar has been a go-to spot for members of the Twin Cities music scene since opening, especially in the punk, indie, and hip-hop scenes, with a live music venue being added in 2003.
