Who woulda thunk an acoustic venue could be shut down for noise violations? Well, it happened at Nine Muses, which is smack in the middle of a residential neighborhood at 2715 SE Belmont. With any luck they'll be back up and running soon, and will continue to have live music. Here's the post from their MySpace blog:

Nine Muses is closed for the next month due to a change in ownership and for re-model. Due to previous OLCC and noise violations under the previous owner, the venue had been banned from having live music until Jan 10th. All performances are canceled. Please help spread the word.

We do apologize for the inconvenience. We hope to make Nine Muses the best it can be in the future. Should we be allowed to continue offering acoustic music, we would hope to be able to work with you in the future.
