“Scar tissue is stronger than regular tissue. Realize the strength, move on.” - Henry Rollins

General Admission is back with a new season! We’ve got so much planned for you guys so get those headphone ready, subscribe and share.

For our first official episode back Don sits down with singer and storytelling powerhouse Henry Rollins and Chicago rock venue legend Joe Shanahan. Shanahan is the owner of Metro, a venue anchored within the Chicago music scene. In this episode you’ll hear a discussion surrounding the relationship between bands and the venues that house them.

Henry talks how his band needed venues like The Metro in order to make enough money for a Denny’s Grand Slam breakfast and gas to make it to the next gig. Places like the Metro also need the bands and musicians so they can keep the lights on. It’s a symbiotic relationship.

This interview is part of an ongoing series of intimate conversation to be held at the Metro and sponsored by Dark Matter Coffee and Shure.
