Richard’s Closed

Richard’s on Richards Cabaret in Vancouver, British Columbia, is going away, but not necessarily for good.

The 449-capacity club is shuttering July 19 because the building at 1036 Richards St. is going to be demolished.

The August date for Alejandro Escovedo was moved to the nearby Red Room, as were other shows.

The last show is Five Alarm Funk, a Vancouver afro-funk 12-piece orchestra.

The club expects to reopen in a different location in October. Recent shows at the longtime venue include New York Dolls, No Use For A Name and Lady Sovereign.
