there’s not a real good way to enforce social distancing especially at the entrance, bars, and restrooms. i’m not convinced the rash of flu that hit Bear’s staff Nov/Dec wasn’t COVID. his particular corporate umbrella has been awesome in listening to experts rather than idiots, communicating ever changing plans, and doing everything they possibly can to retain employees until this is passed. like, we haven’t lost our benefits.

as far as national touring goes, the local infrastructure for that is gone. tours don’t carry large lighting and sound in the bus. that all gets set up in advance through vendors. those vendors are going bankrupt and shutting shop. even when it’s safe to gather again, the live event industry will be scrambling to reassemble. Bear thinks this will shift touring acts back into older style residencies where a band would spend a week in town and do multiple shows before moving on.
