Just found out today that San Diego lost a few music venues for 2013. Looks like 4th & B, Bar Eleven, Anthology, The Calypso Cafe, and The Whaling Bar will be closing their doors. Out of all these venues, Lexington Field has only played Bar Eleven, which was always good shows, so hopefully they reopen some point soon.
Some other memories I have of these venues was seeing one of my favorite bands, Great Big Sea, play Anthology. That was such an awesome show and I had the chance to talk with Murray and Kris afterwards too. It was a fancy place to play, so I’m not sure they would be to open to American Fiddle Rock. I also remember seeing Coheed & Cambria at 4th & B a couple years ago with my brother. Coheed always blows me away with their amazing songs and live performance! Bummer, I couldn’t make it to those other venues, but as a wise man once said, “Sometimes you eat the bar and sometimes the bar, well, he eats you.”
