A Sad Song

This makes us feel all sorts of icky inside. We are all for improvements and fresh ideas here in the Capital Region, but we are definitely not celebrating the loss of this music scene. Thanks to Patrick Dodson for this awesome piece of work:

I’ve only been to Valentine’s a handfull of times, one of them to see Wesley Willis. If you know who that is, then Kudos.

I’ve waxed poetic for hours about neighborhood places I’ve loved and lost, and some that have moved but not remained the same in transition (Lionheart, for example, was much better before Bombers took over their space) but I’m sure many would disagree but there’s my lens.

It totally sucks that the essence of the club could die when it changes locations, but change it must and such is life. One can only hope that this local business owner works to keep the doors open someplace else.

God knows we have glut of vacant buildings in the City. The city leaders and the project developers will need to work their fingers to the bone with the owner to help ease the financial burden and uncertainty relating to a move. It sure would be great to keep the next incarnation of this venue in the neighborhood – perhaps on Quail St. where small businesses other than convenience stores are needed.
