Are they taking everything away?
I must confess, I am really sad to hear the news that the good old Spectrum will be torn down to make yet another office building. The Spectrum was the perfect sized venue for talent that pulled in numbers that were too big for Metropolis but who wanted to have a nice intimate concert. I know there’s still Theatre St-Denis (and having seen Amanda Marshall there twice, I can vouch that it’s great), but the Spectrum is just special.
Maybe it’s partly because my husband played a show there back in 2003, but I don’t think it’s just that. I think it’s mostly due to yet another hallmark of our city going the way of so many others.
