Steve Poponi Death – Steve Poponi, the co-owner of Gradwell House in Haddon Heights, New Jersey has reportedly passed away leaving his family and loved ones. The cause of his death was not mentioned and the circumstances surrounding his passing are unknown. Steve had formerly worked as a Sound Guy at Boot & Saddle.
Up Up Down Down for short(er), was mostly a studio effort led by Steve Poponi. They play an unclassifiable style of nerd/math indie rock that may be described in simpler terms as untechnical, intriguing, lyrically direct, and just plain fantastic. The members of the band come from a variety of other bands, and they rotate in and out of the lineup regularly.
The Gradwell House was formerly a home in Maple Shade, New Jersey, located on W. Gradwell Avenue. It featured a basement studio and DIY show area. Since then, the studio has resided in a butcher shop in Gloucester City (from 2002 to 2004), a slumlord’s leaking-roofed shithole on Atlantic avenue in Haddon Heights (from 2004 to 2016), and now our new wonderful and permanent home just around the corner in a repurposed, custom designed and built Masonic Lodge (Lodge 191 Y’all) on Station Avenue in downtown Haddon Heights, New Jersey.
