RIP Stray Cat Bar & Grill
Another Tempe music venue has gone down for the count as Stray Cat Bar & Grill -- a venue for numerous local rock, punk, and hip-hop shows over the past decade -- quietly closed over the weekend.

The announcement of the bar's closing came as a surprise to some patrons. An update to the bar's Facebook page on Sunday morning stated that it would close later that night after "one last hurrah." The cause of the shuttering was not stated, though we're willing to guess it was related to money.

Replies made to the Facebook post were of an astonished nature, including some from a few people stating the closure was unexpected. Others stated that it wasn't surprising at all.

Regardless of whether or not its patrons could've predicted the Stray Cat going RIP, its closure represents the loss of yet another Tempe live music venue within the past couple of years.
