Eddie Owen announced on his Facebook page Monday morning that he was fired over the weekend from the venue that bears his name.
The legendary Atlanta venue owner-promoter hasn’t owned the music hall in nearly a decade, but has always remained involved.
In December, Owen agreed to a handshake deal with new owners Alex Cooley and Dave Mattingly to manage and book both Eddie’s Attic and Owen’s new venture, Eddie Owen Presents at the Red Clay Theatre in Duluth.
On his Facebook posting, originally publicized by Richard Eldredge at Atlanta Magazine Monday morning, Owen simply said, “Won’t be going inside Eddie’s Attic again, got fired on Friday,” and then invited followers to check out a show at the Duluth venue.
“We’ll share a little story,” the posting said.
Messages left for Owen and Eddie’s Attic owners have not yet been returned.
