Hardback Cafe Makes A Comeback

Alan Bushnell, the previous owner of the Hardback Cafe, has decided to reopen the locally famous venue 15 years after its closing. The Hardback brought in both national and local acts and played a big role in Gainesville's music and arts culture in the '90s. Bushnell closed the cafe to attend law school but is now ready to reopen and bring the atmosphere back to Gainesville.
