In other Washington Avenue club news, Lotus now occupies the former LO space at 501 North 15th, a fact that has been driven into my inbox by five more-or-less identical messages from Easy Productions and B&W Presents in the last week. Lotus seems to be taking great pains to identify itself with LO, as evidenced by the prominent "LO" in its logo and a curiously punctuated line in all of the email messages I received that reads "Lotus ( I.E... THE FORMER LO ) ????".
