Wow, a true Lubbock iconic bar looks to be, at the very least, closing a chapter.

I drove by Wild West Lubbock this morning and was stunned to see what I thought was an ominous message. It just said, "Thanks Lubbock."

Figuring that could mean anything, I doubled back for a picture, then put out feelers to see what was going on. I got a lot of good information, but the deal-closer is the attached Facebook post. The message was one of two saying it was their "last night."

All I can say is, wow. It's never good when we lose a live performance venue. We are extremely happy to have been one of the last events to pack the place. Everybody was awesome, courteous and ready to party.

Now, let's keep in mind that the club could always open under new ownership or could get a makeover and become something else. Whatever it is, we want to wish our old friends at Wild West Lubbock the best. You always treated us well, and we hope you are always treated well.
