Did you know the Lava Lounge is closing? Did you know bands aren't going to be playing there any more?

Did you know they're going to renovate it into a real cocktail lounge?

Did you know you only have a few more weeks to enjoy the Lava Lounge as you've enjoyed it for the last 13 years?

Did you know that when LAist was a little more into the singles scene, let's say, the Lava Lounge came through almost every single time because it's local, the girls are cute, and you don't have to shout to work your magic?

Did you know that LA's hottest unsigned band The Mere Mortals are playing there tonight, that there will be a Tom Waits tribute night on Feb. 11th, and the final night will include burlesque dancers?
