Tempe's Club Red Is Moving to Mesa in May

The Tempe music scene's suffered the loss of a slew of venues in the last couple years, including the Clubhouse, Rocky Point Cantina, Stray Cat, and -- a few months from now -- The Sail Inn. And it's about to lose two more: Club Red and Red Owl.

The proprietors of side-by-side concert spots, situated near University Drive and Loop 101 in Tempe, announced this afternoon that they're planning to move the venue approximately two miles west to Mesa by Memorial Day.
