The Day the Heavy Metal Music Died

I'm just wondering, but do the new ordinances Jefferson Parish just dropped on Fat City constitute "gentrification" or "Disneyfication?" Discuss.

Bonus Item 1: Midnight on weeknights and 1am on weekends? It takes a lot for any district to make Georgia's alcohol-serving regulations look progressive, but there you go. At least Fat City can still stay open on Sunday.

Bonus Item 2: If the bars and adult entertainment establishments pull up stakes and move, where in Greater New Orleans do they land?

Bonus Item 3: Does the Fat City heavy metal scene survive this by adapting to new surroundings, or do they find another place to play?
