Movin' on up
Walter's goes off-Washington
I guess you could say Walter's didn't change, Washington Avenue did. This former live music mecca is now a panacea of expensive townhouses and trendy lounges, so a Twitter report that Walter's on Washington would be closing at the end of October, was lamented but not surprising. Luckily for all who love the Houston music scene, this isn't the end for Walter's—owner Pam Robinson leaked to the Houston Press and the Chronicle that Walter's would merely be moving, not closing, jumping to a soon-to-be-announced 1928 warehouse space downtown:
"I love Washington Avenue. I've always loved it, and I've always appreciated it. I see the direction it's going, and it was time for Walter's to get a bigger spot and get more parking. It really was. A place where there's no homes around, more parking. Actually the neighbors have been great, now that the [noise complaint] lawsuit's finished. I'm going to miss the neighbors; they've been very good to us."
