Sydney's set to say goodbye to yet another iconic live music venue — though this time, thankfully, the farewell's only temporary.

The team behind Liverpool Street's Hudson Ballroom has taken to Facebook to announce the venue will close its doors this month, as it undergoes some hefty renovations. It's revealed that when the current owners first took over the former Goodgod Small Club site, building restrictions kept them from giving it the upgrade it really deserved. Two and a half years on and this long-planned revamp has finally been given the go-ahead.

But Hudson Ballroom's not going out without a bang, saying thank you to all of its supporters with a huge closing party this Saturday, April 28. The Wrecking (Hud)Ball 'Closing For Renos' Party will feature sets from some of the venue's DJ regulars, with the likes of SZASZ, WHO and Hex Pest taking over the front room for a session of hip hop and party tunes. The Sidechain DJs will be working their magic in the back room, while the bar slims down by offering $6 house spirits, $6 beers and $10 top-shelf booze. Best of all, entry's just $5.

No word yet on how long Hudson Ballroom will be closed, but we'll keep you in the loop as we learn more. We're banking on a pretty big return party once the venue's up and running.'
