Armory Blues

Does this story make anyone else think the Armory's days are numbered? From a practical standpoint, it seems like they should tear down the building and start over. It’s old and becoming expensive to maintain. I personally would be sad to see it go. I saw a lot of good (and some not so good) concerts there before the PCCC became the city’s main big act venue in the very early 1980s. It holds a lot of good memories. But with the building being practically uninhabitable now, maybe it’s time to say goodbye.

I'd hate to see it go too, but if that's inevitable, then I wish they'd stop spending $800,000 on the roof and be done with it.

Some of my more memorable Armory events: My sister's high school graduation (65); Three Dog Night in concert (70 or 71); a circus act consisting of a motorcycle traveling from one corner to another on a highwire, at what seemed like full throttle (year unknown).
