Not the rad metal band, unfortunately. I am thinking about The Triple Rock, which is shutting down next week. It is my all time favorite venue, and I am pretty heartbroken to lose it. I didn't see a ton of shows there, but all of them were pretty memorable.
The first show I saw there was Okkervil River & John Vanderslice the weekend of my 22nd birthday. I took J to see The Wrens and Boris there. I was able to catch The Plot to Blow Up the Eiffel Tower on an incredible bill with The Locust. And in July, I got to see Mitski for the fourth time.
I'm sad I couldn't make it down for Boris last month. If I had more notice about it closing I probably would have done something to make it happen.
Does anyone else have good memories of the Triple Rock, or another now defunct venue? Drop those and/or your ten below.
