"Allston Is Dead": Great Scott, RIP

Description (Dublin Core)

On May 1, 2020, the manager of Allston music venue Great Scott announced that the club would not reopen. In the days that followed, residents gathered in front of the doors to mourn its loss and share memories. During that period, someone tagged "Allston Is Dead" here, a sentiment expressing frustrations about how the neighborhood had changed over the years due to rising rent, gentrification, and other factors.
