Slate’s taking a look back at the past six months, a half-year dominated by the COVID-19 pandemic. For the series, Jordan Weissmann wrote about the particular difficulties live music venues are facing. In honor of these endangered independent venues, we’re asking you to share your live music experiences and your hopes for future concerts. Tell us your wildest or best concert experience and which band or artist you’re most eager to see live after the pandemic ends. Feel free to share videos of your favorite shows, and let us all experience a taste of live music here at home.
The Open Discussions are here for commenters to connect with one another outside the fast-moving, sometimes contentious article pages. It’s a place for online friends to share a joke or newcomers to get their feet wet. As always, our discussion topic is a suggestion, not a command, so feel free to (civilly) talk among yourselves.
