Music venues were some of the first to close and may be some of the last to open back up. Bars in Ohio are re-opening tomorrow. We don’t know what the future holds, but we have hope. We can’t wait to enjoy music and drinks together again at our place. Just not yet... 🧡

Remember Small, Sweaty Music Venues?

We miss the energy. We miss the friendships. We miss the sweaty nights. We miss needing earplugs. We miss the camaraderie of being in a crowd with each other and singing along. We miss making new friends with other drunk girls in the bathroom. We miss buying merch. We miss catching up with pals on the patio. We miss opening the garage door because it’s so hot. We miss our bartenders. We miss our sound guys. We miss our barback. We miss our friendly faces at the door. We miss all of the musicians. We miss you.

We don’t know what our future looks like, but we’re working on making it the best it can be when we are eventually and safely able to open back up!

The coronavirus has hit the underground music scene hard.

This is a photo from Saturday, August 24th of last year. Rubber City Jazz and Blues Fest was in full swing. There was about an hour of absolute stillness and calm in the alley before we opened the doors for the Acid Cats headliner at Musica that night. Justin and Tommy were warming up on the patio and there was nothing else to think about for that brief time. You could hear the music bouncing off of the buildings and filling the alley and you couldn’t hear anything else. It was a sea of calm in the midst of a packed weekend, like time was stopped. It was a really beautiful moment. My hope is that whenever all of this is said and done, is that we are still able to find the beauty in these moments together and allow them to fill our hearts once again.

*Acid Cats were scheduled to play Musica tonight. Please support them by purchasing their music on Bandcamp or at acidcatsmusic.com

We were so excited for the show we had scheduled tonight with Collin Miller & the Brother Nature and Red Rose Panic. We will announce a rescheduled date as soon as we’re able. Please consider supporting these artists in other ways during these strange times. Collin will be live-streaming a solo performance tonight from their Instagram page. Collin Miller and Red Rose Panic both have a bunch of amazing music online to purchase. Bandcamp is waiving fees for artists today so head over to Bandcamp.com and purchase some digital albums, all proceeds will go directly to musicians. Thank you for supporting music. Stay healthy out there. ❤️

Hey everyone! Due to social distancing measures, the band will not be getting together for a live stream tonight. BUT, I will be playing a solo set of music live from our Instagram page (@elbrothernature ) tonight.

The stream will start at 8PM EST this evening.

We’ll be accepting donations to help the band via Venmo and Cashapp, as all of us are missing gigs and work due to the virus.

I hope to see you at 8!

03/14/2020

There is nothing we would rather be doing right now than enjoying live music together. Music brings people together. Music brought us together. It is the thing that makes us feel better, calmer, happier. Live music makes us feel, period. It is cathartic and unifying. Live music provides moments where whatever is going on in the outside world can go to the back of your mind for a minute while you’re taken someplace else. These experiences are what we need right now more than ever.

We are in a strange and scary time that we’ve never been in before. I would like to think we’ll be open again next weekend but the absolute truth is that we just don’t know. There isn’t a single decision being made that is being taken lightly right now. The safety and health and well-being of our team and the community is my number one concern. Until I know that we can safely move forward in these uncertain times, we have to take things hour by hour.

I love Musica and when I say Musica, I don’t just mean the venue but every individual that is on our team. Every musician. Everyone who comes to see shows. Our regulars. Musica is something that has turned into more than a venue for a lot of us.

My heart is breaking over the fact that we can’t be doing what we love to do right now. I am taking it cautiously and weighing all of our options. Thank you for all of your support.
We’ll keep you updated. Hang in there and listen to some music to help get you through.
