Indie venues like World Cafe Live are struggling to survive COVID-19

KYW In Depth: Coronavirus
Thursday, June 4th
Every few days, an independent music venue announces it won't be able to reopen after the coronavirus pandemic. Philadelphia is home to about 20 independent venues -- places that welcome a variety of artists and bands from up and comers to national acts to open mics and garage bands. But since the coronavirus pandemic hit, indie music venues across the country are facing closures. Some have already shut their doors for good. Hal Real, founder of World Cafe Live and WCL Education joins KYW In Depth to talk about a local and national effort going on to save independent venues and hopefully welcome fans back soon, safely.
