River Gods, the Cambridge bar that’s become a favorite of patrons who dig the groovy, low-key vibe and the excellent DJs, has closed. Owner Jackie Linnane announced Monday that the bar was “unsuccessful in renewing” its lease and is now permanently shuttered. “It is shocking and terribly sad for all of us. Surreal. . .” she wrote on Facebook and in an e-mail to a few dozen DJs who play music at River Gods. “I cannot express how I feel. . . . So many good times, so many memories . . . such great music . . . 15 years. . . . ”
