Striking the Anvil

Actually, that would be, "striking the mess that will become the Anvil."

This is Andrew Dudek. He and Green Bean coffeeshop owner, Pete Schroth, are starting a huge music club in downtown Greensboro, at the end of Lewis St, a block down from Elm. The club will be called The Flying Anvil and the guys have set April as a finishing date. Perhaps there will be a release party for Cat Power's newest album if everything is ready. The club will have a large bar area, a larger performance area with a stage, a V.I.P. nest and a record store. The club will host all sorts of bands, says Dudek, who owned and operated Tate Street's Gate City Noise.
Construction is definitely underway - today I spent several hours hauling old ceiling tiles and pieces of former wall out of the V.I.P. parlor-to-be with Andrew as the third muskateer chipped away at the cement. For now the guys are working Monday, Wednesdays and Fridays starting at 9 A.M. and eagerly accepting any volunteers who want to help out. The space is amazing and amazingly huge. I highly recommend stopping by.

This is the third muskateer in the future V.I.P. lounge. Notice the mask he's wearing. I had to wear one too so as not to inhale too much dust.
