If you happened to have read the latest post on Notsouh’s MySpace blog, you may be hysterics right about now. It seems owner/curator Jim Pirtle fielded an offer this morning from a wealthy investment banker to buy the venerable downtown landmark for the sum of at least $2.8 million, as stated in the hurried post.
We reached Pirtle by phone just a few minutes ago and he assured us that the offer was still just an offer. No papers have been signed and no one has the keys to the kingdom. He is considering this with a heavy heart, he tells Rocks Off. After almost 13 years as one of Houston’s most unique music venues, it has seen its share of hard times as of late. Hurricane Ike did no one any favors, and a recent burglary only added insult to injury. Still, Pirtle insists to Rocks Off that he's "not giving up the place just yet.”
