Non c'è solo la riduzione a un solo concerto quotidiano - anziché due - tra le novità per il club newyorkese The Stone: più importante, in prospettiva, il cambio di sede annunciato per la primavera del prossimo anno. Scrive John Zorn, direttore artistico del benemerito locale: "The one constant in NYC is change and after 13 years in the East Village and 7500 performances The Stone will be closing its doors. February 2018 will be our last month at Avenue C and 2nd street. We hope to secure a new location and discussions are proceeding but as yet nothing has been definitely decided. All of us at The Stone extend heartfelt thanks to the musicians who have performed here, the volunteers who have kept it running, our patrons who have given generously to help cover our expenses and to our audience for its support. We do hope you will all enjoy this last year in our historic underground East Village location and that you will all follow the music wherever it leads. Venues come and go but the music continues on forever!"
