Although the rumor that they were going to close in the near future had been circulating in the music scene for a while now, Shanghai's (basically) only home for heavy music fans sprung the news the night of, confirming their closure to a small gathering of their fans.
Don't count them out, however. Speaking with owner Ting Ting (also of the equally beloved Roxie), Inferno is going to take a short break and come back again in a third incarnation, returning to the core roots of the first Inferno.
("Roooots, bloody rooooots.")
According to Ting Ting, for Inferno Part III: No stage, better location.
"Next stop is Jing'an," Ting tells SmartShanghai.
