Fire Extinguishes Five Spot
On Saturday morning, a 4-alarm fire in Old City totally destroyed the Five Spot. Thankfully, no one was injured in fire. The Five Spot was a venue that in so many ways embodied the eclectic, artistic spirit of Philadelphia. I have many musician friends who have been welcomed to the stage of the Five Spot. I’m sure that they along with many other Philadelphians are saddened by this loss. The site’s website has not been updated to reflect the events of Saturday which seems to add to the sadness of this event, as you can witness the full and vibrant schedule of events.
