Roseland Ballroom (NYC) gets destroyed...
This is so depressing I can't even put it into words. I saw so many shows here I got to know it as home. Every inch of that place I remember, the bathrooms downstairs, the corner of the back floor back by where they sold hot dogs where you could get a primo viewing spot, the balcony, the backstage area, outside of backstage.
