Fitzgerald's gets new owners and upgrades

I used to see shows at Fitzgerald's in The Heights as a high schooler and when I came home from college. Seems like good news is on its way for the legendary Houston music venue as detailed in an email I received from FPH:

Free Press Houston and Concerts, the people who brought you Free Press Summer Fest, are proud to announce they will be the new owner-operators of legendary Houston live music venue Fitzgerald's effective September 2010. Having opened it's doors in 1977, Fitzgerald's has hosted legendary acts, and The new owners will carry on that fabled tradition while adding an energetic new vigor the venue has not seen in some years.

The 'current Fitzgerald's' will continue its' operations through early September yet close its' doors for a couple of weeks for renovations. Besides aesthetic changes to the building, crucial improvements will be made to the sound system despite it being one of the best sounding rooms in the city. New website, full lineup, and details on grand re-opening ill be released in coming weeks. Expect big things.

No doubt, Free Press Houston has become quite the musical force in Houston!
