According to LongIslandPress.com, Farmingdale-based nightclub and concert venue Crazy Donkey has closed its doors.
Crazy Donkey spokesperson Rick Eberle had the following to say:
Times are tough and they had to close the doors. Certain shows sometimes do well and sometimes don’t do well. It’s a complicated business plan, there was more stuff going on at the Donkey besides the rock shows. There were dance nights and that sort of thing, so I guess everyone is a little bit to blame for not enough profit coming in to warrant them keeping the doors open.
Most upcoming shows have been moved to Ollie’s Point in Amityville, NY, with As I Lay Dying‘s November 30th Crazy Donkey gig with Of Mice & Men, The Ghost Inside, Iwrestledabearonce and Sylosis still up in the air.
Crazy Donkey’s last show was this past Sunday, September 18th with Pepper, The Expendables, and Ballyhoo!
