The Red Rose Is Dead; Long Live Your Feelings About The Red Rose



  • Photo: Bingham Barnes

Well, you can scratch The Red Rose off the endangered list and hit "publish" on that obit you've had sitting in your drafts since January. Whatever petitions were floating around did nothing to stop the demolition of the once-beloved Murfreesboro cafe and venue, once run by Glossary's Bingham Barnes and staffed by (then) unlikely Bonnaroo second-stage performer Sharon Van Etten. ("Well, working at Red Rose was amazing. It was my home away from home," she told me just before she played The 5 Spot early this year.) Today on Facebook, Barnes posted two photos of The Red Rose's demise. The first is above, the second below. Pour some out for Bucket City.
