Plush was packed to capacity at the Rock 'n' Roll Marathon in October.

Following the Gramophone's decision to switch its focus from music to food and Bad Dog's upcoming closure in the Grove, Plush will close on January 3 -- with less than two weeks' notice. Music fans have more than a few chances to show their support with acts like Little Falcon, Farewell Angelina, Buku and Day 26 still on the way.

The announcement was made yesterday afternoon through a Facebook status update. Lacking any sentimental tone, the quick message says more about drink specials than any remaining concerts.
