The Agora Did Not Burn Down


Just an FYI, Cleveland: There was a small fire on the roof of the Agora today but everything looks A-OK. No Michael Stanley albums or vintage drumsets in the basement were damaged.

WOIO reports that the sparks started on the roof as roofers were re-roofing. No one needs to raze the roof, for it is fine. No details on whether a man named Rufus was present.

The biggest problem at present is the smell of smoke lingering in the building, which should nicely cover the stale stench of decades of pee on the floor.

Either way, the next show, scheduled for Saturday night, will go on.
