Live music is one of the things I miss most about pandemic times. I met the person I would someday marry at the Trocadero in Philadelphia on this very day, many years ago. The Troc is no longer open, sadly, but the number of new music venues in Philly has exploded in recent years. I’ve been to many of them, and they are fantastic; although they don’t have that same fabulous grit that places like the Troc, the TLA, Khyber Pass once did. Still, I’d love to be able to go to any of them right now. Can’t wait til that can happen again, safely.
