Could you imagine living in a world with no venues? No live music? All of the memories and experiences in a crowded concert room, hearing the vibrations of the bass, singing along with your friends in a room filled with historic meaning… all gone. Concerts and tours have been canceled, releases of new music have been pushed back, and one avenue that has skimmed over peoples' minds is the effect these closures are having on independently owned venues. The well-known Fillmore venue in San Francisco, where Jimi Hendrix performed and gave light to rock music in the 1960’s, and The Troubadour in West Hollywood, where Elton John made his U.S. debut, could all be lost and closed for good due to this pandemic.
