RIPR's Chuck Hinman talks with Rich Lupo about 40 years at the Heartbreak Hotel

Lupo's Heartbreak Hotel, the Providence rock club, turns 40 this year. First opened in 1975, the club started out in the Conrad Building on Westminster St. Two moves later, it's now on Washington St. in the Strand building. To celebrate 40 years of live music, Lupo's sister club, the Met in Pawtucket, hosted several nights of music featuring favorites from years past, including Roomful of Blues, The Schemers, Rizzz and The Young Adults. For this month's Artscape, RIPR's Chuck Hinman talked to founder Rich Lupo about how it all started and what's next.
