Khyber is "not going anywhere"

Don't read anything into the live music shutdown, the owner says.

Khyber is "not going anywhere"

The Twitter-verse blew up this afternoon after it was noticed that the website of the Khyber in Old City indicated that it would no longer be programming live music after July 31.

The Khyber closing? A sale??

To get the answer, I bothered to call owner Stephen Simons, who said he merely had fired the booking agent, effective July 31.

He said a new booking agent would be onboard soon and would pick up programming in September.

You'll also notice that the Khyber's calendar now says that there will be no shows in August.
