Those were the days
None of us really know when live music will be back in the way we enjoyed it before things changed. My last show was Local H and Soul Asylum at Metro Music Hall. Had I known, I would have gone to a lot more before things shut down. You might have, too. With reports saying that 90% of small venues could close if things don’t get rolling in the next couple of months, there may be good reason to worry.
It seems I was barely getting used to the Urban Lounge’s remodel. Starcrawler was the last show I saw there. I don’t smoke, but I kind of even miss their cigarette porch where everyone talked about what show was coming up next or where they were going after for more drinks. I miss the eclectic mix of shows that Metro Music Hall had, seeing up-and-comers at Kilby, or catching The Faint at The Complex. I miss Twilight no matter which city it takes place in. I miss it all.
Anyway, I went through the X96 photo archive (as you can see) and pulled a lot of my favorite photos from years past. Maybe you were at some of these shows, too. Flip through and get a little sentimental. I know I did going through the X96 picture bank. I almost got a bit misty-eyed when I came across the Foo Fighters shots I snapped (I took my dad to that show).
After you’re done going down our memory lane, grab your phone or computer and go through your pics and share a pic or video or two from your favorite show below. Maybe like some mythical rain dance, we can put enough good music karma out there to beat back COVD-19 and allow us to get back out there and revel to a live band like the savages we are – stranger things have happened, right?
