Re: “Why did Animal Kingdom have to die?

I went to a couple shows there and I won't miss it. One show was definitely on a weeknight, and while bands did play in the basement, at least 25-30 kids were outside being loud the whole time. Between sets it was more like 50 probably. Not to mention the basement was tiny and only had one legit exit. God forbid there had ever been a fire there... Anyway, I'm shocked this place lasted as long as it did.

Also, let's not act like this is a big deal at all. There have been soooo many better DIY venues in Chicago over the years, and there are plenty of cool ones out there now...they are just way smarter about it. Who actually gives a shit about animal kingdom? Why is anyone even talking about it?

I mostly just wonder how this article got past the editors. I hold the Reader to a higher journalistic standard than this crap. The writer must just be friends with these kids, right?
