They say that your favorite era of music and movies ends up coming from when you were in high school. That certainly is true for me. Graduating in 1995 put the Seattle scene firmly in my blood.
Do you remember how you used to pass the time in the 90's? The Quad Cities was FULL of stuff to do for young and old. But let's face it...the real fun stuff happened when you were old enough to get into the Jolly Roger.
What The Quad Cities Did For Fun in the 90's
Many times over the years, I'll be talking with friends about years gone by and I'll say "take me back".
Every generation goes through this, I assume. Looking back at a more simple time where responsibilities haven't set in and life seems fun. Opportunities are endless.
Let's go back to the 1990's to Wacky Waters, 50 Cent Beer night and revisit Mallards Mania!
Quad Cities Live Music Venues That Aren't Live Music Venues Anymore
We've compiled a quick list (by no means comprehensive) of venues in the Quad Cities that are no longer music venues but to us will ALWAYS hold a special place were we saw some great shows and made some incredible memories.
To many of us the live music scene wasn't just a concert here & there. It was an every weekend affair. And it didn't matter if it was a touring band or your buddy's band. We were going to be there with a beer in hand and scream along with guitars that were way too loud in a room that was improperly treated acoustically and make some bad decisions.
