St. Paul punk and metal venue Station 4, which has been closed since June, is receiving a lot more than just a ventilation upgrade according to its ownership.
Last week, a post on the club's Facebook page suggested that it would be reopening as a "blues venue," and a "Save Station 4" page appeared, but there was very little context provided with the announcement. In a conversation with Alan Peterson, co-owner of the building that houses the rough-and-tumble venue, Gimme Noise has uncovered a much more ambitious plan for the space at East Fourth and Sibley Streets.
According to Peterson, who is the local partner in a group that has been in control of the building for the past 15 years, there will be at least two, and possibly three venues housed in the spot that could soon be formerly known as Station 4. Also, the attitude is definitely going to be different when business starts up again -- which now looks to be sometime in 2014.
