Earlier today, the ownership of The Red Palace in Washington, DC officially announced that as of January 1st, 2013, they will be closing their doors.
Since we debuted there on March 18th, 2011, The Red Palace and its wild audiences quickly became our “home-away-from-home”, allowing us to present a show that was on par with our Ottobar hometown blowouts for the first time away from Baltimore. Over four live events, we grew a solid following in the Nation’s Capital, sold out both our first and last shows at the venue, and presented some of the most outrageous moments in Super Art Fight history.
Who can forget the first in-bout appearance of man-train? Our own Ross Nover being forced to rap in front of a live audience? And at this most recent event, the first defense of the Super Art Fight tag team titles outside of Baltimore. Every DC event pushed us past 11 into new boundaries of humor and taste, and we were better for it.
We’ve built a lot of memories in Washington, DC, and we hope that these won’t be the last. While we look ahead to future shows in new venues in the area, there will never be another Red Palace, and we can’t thank them enough for letting us do what we do best in front of one of DC’s best crowds.
