I read on r/Vancouver yesterday that The Media Club is going to end. There is an application to turn the music venue into a Browns.
That is sad, but then I thought, “huh, when was last time I saw a show at the Media Club?”
Sam Roberts said it when he said, “The kids don’t dance to rock & roll.” Those of us who grew up going to live rock shows…well we don’t go so much anymore. Maybe a few big shows each year.
The CBC tackled this story the other day. They said that many venues across Canada want extended bar hours….but maybe the solution to making that cash register ring is to have shows start and end earlier!
Personally, I’m a big proponent of the earlier live show. If I can see a concert, AND make it to bed for a decent night’s sleep before the alarm goes off and I’m up rallying the kids and making sandwiches…golden.
