Gravity on the rocks
Are the final days here for Gravity Lounge? A Daily Progress article suggests the end could be near, although owner Bill Baldwin hopes to relaunch as a nonprofit. News of Gravity's woes first trickled out in a letter from musicians Jay Pun and Morwenna Lasko on the social networking site Facebook, asking musicians and patrons of Gravity for donations to keep the place afloat. Gravity has filled the niche for big-name folk, rock, and classical acts in an intimate space since the Prism Coffeehouse closed in 2006 and then relocated headquarters to Patrick County in southwest Virginia in spring 2007.
