I live down the street from the Eagle Tavern, which is near where my walk began. While I was away in L.A., the Eagle shut its doors. Most movements or institutions have limited life spans. The Eagle may return as it was, or become something new. "We all love the Eagle and are very sad to see it go," Alexander says. "It felt good [to play there one last time] even though [the closure is] such a shitty thing. It is the end of a really good era."
