Kermit Ruffins held a meeting at his club today, as covered below by Deb Cotton (who Gambit later learned was an active participant in the meeting), to rally musicians and club owners to confront the city's live music permitting situation. To clear up any confusion from one quote in that post, Mimi's in the Marigny has not been shut down by the city. The bar is open. Proprietor Mimi Dykes voluntarily discontinued live music as of Wednesday, Sept. 19, in order to deal with permitting issues, she said via phone from the bar this afternoon. She says she has been in contact with Scott Hutcheson from the city's Office of Cultural Economy and will meet with him soon to find out what the bar needs to do to get in compliance.
