Moldy Fig Jazz Club Closed Indefinitely Due to Illness
The Moldy Fig Jazz Club, a fledgling bar, cafe and music space that opened last summer, has closed indefinitely due to health problems of proprietor Charles Brown.
Brown’s mother, Ella, posted on the club’s Facebook page on Nov. 23 announcing a temporary closure “due to family illness.” A week later, she followed up with a post saying the club would remain shuttered “until Charles recovers from his illness and hospitalization.”
The last show on the published calendar was Nov. 22. In addition to its regularly scheduled shows, late-night jam sessions and open mic nights, the club offered a small menu of sandwiches and bar snacks, as well as games such as Scrabble and shuffleboard.
We’ve reached out to the Browns for an update; we’ll keep you posted when we hear more.
