I used to live half a block from there, back in the 80s. I only went twice, both times to see Mojo Nixon, who put on a hell of a show. It was said at the time that, if you pulled all the staples out of the walls, the place would fall down.
You've never heard of Mojo Nixon? OMG, are you in for a treat! Go on youtube and search for him. He's sort of a novelty act, with some incredibly funny songs, but he can really rock out. Some of his classics are "Debbie Gibson is Pregnant with My 2-Headed Bigfoot Love Child" (The video features Winona Ryder as Debbie), Stuffin' Martha's Muffin (A tribute to MTV's Martha Quinn), "Burn Down The Malls," Don Henley Must Die," "Tie My Pecker to My Leg," "Gin-Guzzlin' Frenzy," and "Where The Hell's My Money." He's pretty much retired these days, but still shows up on Sirius XM Radio now and then. Guaranteed fun!
He was vitriolic enough that Alabama removed him from the state Supreme Court... twice...
He has no respect for the rule of law and has violated the Constitution almost as often as trump has.
I think you're right- I was just noticing the pickwick plaza had like no tenants, the mexican restaurant next to che fon fon was closed. And black market was moved and what used to be bell bottoms was empty (nothing unusual there).
