Santos Party House Shut Down

Andrew W.K.'s much loved Santos Party House has been shut down by the NYPD. What happened? The NYPD shut Santos down under the hotly debated Nuisance Law, citing "criminal sale or possession of controlled substances" inside the venue. The Nuisance Law is extremely easy for the PD to allege, and they seem to time their efforts to shut a place down on a Friday afternoon before a big weekend (remember the M2 affair?), and Halloween was very big for Santos. Steve Lewis reports that Santos is trying to get the order overturned in court to open for the weekend, but it seems likely that the club will be out of commission for the next few weeks while this gets sorted out.
