Say it ain't so! According to Salt Magazine, starting on November 1, the ever-popular Downtown Artery in Fort Collins will be shutting down their venue and cafe.

The upstairs art gallery will remain open, and will continue to host events, gatherings, as well as showcase gorgeous local art.

The Downtown Artery has seen acts such as Third Eye Blind, New Politics, and of course 99.9 The Point's New Millennium Dance Parties (the next one of which is this Saturday).

Everyone who loves local music in Fort Collins is feeling this loss this week, but we're glad that The Downtown Artery will continue to spread art and community across our city.
