Club Red Concert Venue Closes Due to COVID-19

Description (Dublin Core)

This article details the closing of the popular Mesa concert venue Club Red during March of 2021. Unfortunately, due to an inability to host concerts as a result of COVID-19, Club Red ran out of business and had to close its doors after 15 years of music. Club Red was the first notable local music venue to close in the wake of the pandemic, and it made me sad personally because my own band used to play shows there. I have had the privilege to interact with Kimberly LaRowe of 13th Floor Entertainment, who is featured in the article, on several occasions to book shows for my band, and I never had a bad experience. While it is not explicitly stated that Club Red closed as a result of COVID-19, it his highly likely, as suggested by Kimberly LaRowe in the article. This article does an excellent job of diving deep into how drastically the local Arizona music scene has been affected by COVID-19, especially venue owners and promoters. Also, this article provides a very interesting story of the history of Club Red over the years, and details the subsequent reactions that many local and prominent musicians had to the venues closing, which certainly adds to the archives performing arts collection
