This Week's Music Feature: Remembering the Sail Inn

In March, Gina Lombardi announced that longstanding Tempe rock venue Sail Inn had been purchased by a local developer and would be demolished to make way for a new location of The Lodge, a restaurant in Scottsdale. The announcement bummed out the club's loyal regulars and the local musicians who've considered the Sail Inn their second home for 24 years.

They’ll simultaneously celebrate and mourn the Sail and its legacy during a three-day Farewell Festival from Friday, June 27, to Sunday, June 29, at the bar.

To read the remembrances of the Sail's fans, musicians, and the owners, join us for an oral history of the club with more twists and turns than nearly any other in the Valley.
