R.I.P. The Forum, The Hippest Venue in LaPorte

Justin Trevino, lead singer and guitarist in the band Buxton, has cool parents. For the past few months, they operated The Forum, LaPorte’s first and only indie rock venue. No more.

Trevino told me last night that his parents had decided to close it down. Last night was the Forum’s final night. “It was just too expensive,” says Trevino. “I think they just wanted to try it out. They have enough to pay rent, but insurance and all that other stuff really adds up.” – John Nova Lomax
