Well, my favorite bandit is at it again. Russ Purcell, flush with success at the Buffalo Club. Russ is preparing a triumphant return to downtown. The location is the former Boogies at 12th and Front. Although Russ as usual was light on the details. Expect a country rock bar. He did tell me that he would run a shuttle from the Buffalo to the new bar and would feature live music! Mr. Purcell has a knack of getting into and out of markets at the right time. Could be a good sign for the scene that he is backing a new club downtown. Maybe it won't go completely dark!
