So this week my favorite local venue for music the Launchpad was shut down because it and the neighboring building (which also had shows on all the time) both suffered a lot of fire damage. The story I heard was the neighboring building was cleaning and the chemicals they used combusted somehow and now most shows are being moved to smaller dives or outright canceled. I was just wondering how many people on UG have had something like this happen to them.

I'm not worried about the town running out of places to go or anything, it's just sad that such a great place is gone and won't be the same when it comes back. I'm excited for any renovations they do, but I've got a connection with the place and I'm afraid it might have gone up with the fire...
