    Legendary music venue honored by DTES business community in Living History Documentary Series

This is about working towards an urban oral tradition, in a young and dynamic city. It’s about storytelling as a form of community building, and about the fragility of history in a frantic modern world. It’s about one place, that through the decades, meant so much to so many.
