OK, OK, Don't panic: they will be back. As you may have noticed, the iconic First Avenue stars have recently been painted over as part of a major "makeover" the establishment is getting. Gimme Noise reports they've received "assurance from marketing and promotions director Machen Davis that the stars will be back soon -- with new additions." Good! So, not only are we getting brand new stars, but a new restaurant (the Depot) and even a women's bathroom in the Entry (we never thought we'd see the day!).
We're not sure about the polling method First Ave has put up to decide what bands get the new stars -- leaving such things up to the "public" could easily go awry. But, we trust our old friends at the Ave. So, make sure to go over to First Avenue's website or Facebook page and tell them who you think deserves a star!
UPDATE: First Ave tells us via Twitter about the pre-opening party at the Depot happening next Monday. Check the deets here.
