Annie's To Become an Ultralounge: Ql Ultralounge, To Be Exact

Posted By on Mon, Jan 18, 2010 at 1:32 PM

Remember at the end of last year, when the punk rockers were concerned that the loss of anything-goes outlet Annie's Social Club would only pave the way for yet another SOMA ultralounge? Well, get ready for yet another SOMA ultralounge, or at least one with Ultralounge in the title.

Clubs Editor John Graham reports that his buddy walked by Annie's old 917 Folsom St. address only to notice an application for a liquor license posted on the door. Upon further investigation, Graham discovered that a new business called Ql Ultralounge is applying to set up shop (ABC license query here).

While it's unnerving to think about replacing such a colorful musical outpost with a venue that has "ultra" anything in the name, the truth is the rich folks and their boutique bars keep businesses more afloat these days than the broke Pabst crews. All the more reason to really patronize the dives you want to remain open.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
