As you’ve probably noticed if you watch the MP Shows listings pages, South Union Arts has packed it in, at least for now–the last show of the season was Saturday. It’s apparently just as impractical to keep a church cool in the middle of summer as it is to keep it warm in the middle of winter. 

The folks at MP plan to reopen the venue when the weather gets more manageable in September, but they’re also looking for a new space that would allow them to quit South Union Arts for good.
