Happiest are the musicians themselves, who have bounced back to their stomping grounds after a long spell.

On our visits to Supersam, Pardon My French, 19 East, and My Brother’s Mustache, we saw the joy of performing in the artists’ faces as the music played and the audience erupted in shouts of approval.

Everyone was alive and kicking and savoring the moments of freedom from the virus’ reach.
