Popular San Francisco music venue Annie's Social Club is set to close on New Year's Eve, according to the SF Weekly. A post on the paper's All Shook Down music blog yesterday afternoon said that the announcement had been made via an email newsletter for the Yahoo group sf_indie. Throughout its four years in business, Annie's Social Club has been a linchpin of the local metal scene and home to regular events like Punk Rock & Schlock Karaoke and Open-Mic Comedy. The announcement contained no indication of the reason for the closure, nor did it answer the question of why rock clubs can't seem to get a decent foothold at 917 Folsom St., which was previously home to both the Cherry Bar and the Covered Wagon Saloon.
