Live Music Blues

Today we received an email from The Lantern, in Blacksburg Virginia which stated that if the low turnout at recent shows continues, then they will have to close their doors come springtime. This news comes after several other well known venues have already closed this year. It also raises a few questions. Are people getting tired of seeing live music? Is the quality of music declining? Are ticket prices too high? We see exorbitant ticket prices at large arenas for aging rock stars - but high ticket prices can't be what's causing the Lantern troubles. Let us know your thoughts.
