I’m continuing to share broadcasts about the postponements and cancellations we are facing due to the Coronavirus Pandemic outbreak. Recently, I shared the post from the folks over at the Saint Vitus Bar (HERE) about their temporary closing. This news comes from the promoters of Brooklyn’s own The Kingsland and how it affects a number of their event spaces. Read on.
Coronavirus Update: As of March 16, Following the direction of the CDC & Governor Cuomo, we will be closing The Kingsland, Gold Sounds & The Monarch until further notice to prevent the spread of Coronavirus.
Our priority will always be the safety of our patrons. We will continue to monitor the situation and do our best to keep you updated on each show via our social media accounts, event pages & our ticketing partners.
Please be patient as we reschedule as many of these events as we can. Canceled events will be automatically refunded at point of purchase. Please support the artists around you during this tough time. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: As I said up above, I had heard and enjoyed so many of the musicians classic numbers growing up and while I was a regular concert attendee I never managed to get around to seeing him perform on the stage. Over the years these tunes stuck with me into my adult life based on just how amazing they were. Songs like “The Gambler” and “Coward Of The County” were stories that as you heard them painted a movie in your mind. I don’t remember seeing the TV movie for “The Gambler” but I do remember his performing in a train car with a few of the Muppets and also when his Kenny Rogers Roasters was a part of a popular “Seinfeld” episode. I never did get around to trying that chicken but don’t remember it ever being something that NYC had as a franchise. Rogers was also adept at amazing duets with singers like Sheena Easton and the also legendary Dolly Parton (“We’ve Got Tonight” and “Islands In The Stream”). I’m going to spend some time on YouTube and Spotify today listening to these great stories again so they help to take my mind away from the news that’s currently on all of our minds. Thank you Mr. Rogers for giving us such songs for so many years. We wish you safe passage to the Great Beyond and send heartfelt condolences to your family, friends and worldwide followers. The dealing is now done. May you Rest In Peace.
