I am Sara Kuntz (Young) I have lived in the Quad Cities all my life. I am 39 years old and I love to rock and go to concerts.

I love hard rock because this sounds weird it does help with my anxiety and the lyrics I can relate to on a lot of levels. I have been into metal since I was very young about age 6 love me some Guns N Roses that’s how it started.

Quad Cities Live Music Venues That Aren't Live Music Venues Anymore

Nostalgia Alert!.

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.
