No Fourth Avenue? No Worries This Crawl

This year's spring Club Crawl might feel cozy, with zero bars on North Fourth Avenue participating in the event, leaving East Congress Street to handle all the rocking itself.

"Basically, the (Fourth Avenue) bars backed out," said Jeb Schoonover, event coordinator and Rialto Theatre owner.

Despite playing the Grinch role, Fourth Avenue bars will still be accepting drink orders.

"I think there was the attitude amongst them, that they could benefit from the event and not be part of it. Personally I think it's a bad attitude to take," Schoonover said.

You may be thinking, "But why should I, of legal drinking age, pay $7 to hear countless local bands rock just about every venue in the downtown area, when I can get wasted at home on whip-its and pump my new William Hung CD?"

My friend, you are pathetic.

The good part is you don't have to be.

Turn that Usher t-shirt inside out, slide into any Zia Records location in advance for the wristband (because if your sorry ass waits, it'll cost you $10 at the door), and get your Mick Jagger-swagger on Saturday night.

As a service, Go Wild will even include the complete schedule (subject to changes), so your stoned, drunk ass can needle in and out of the Congress clubs and stages at will.
