Well this is just sad news this morning. Skyloft, the great food and music venue that opened up in April of last year at Crossgates Mall is closing it's doors for good. The owners announced the permanent closure on their Facebook and Instagram pages. They said "It is with a heavy heart that we announce the permanent closure of our beloved venue, Skyloft. These times of uncertainty have taken their toll on all of us, and though we have been fighting the good fight, we, like countless other live entertainment venues, have unfortunately succumbed to the concerns and restrictions brought forth by the COVID-19 pandemic."
This is sad on so many levels. When Skyloft opened last year, we were lucky enough to host several shows there. It was so perfect for smaller concerts. And they brought in some great bands too. Of course, we know that right now things are tough for all live music venues, but my hope is that when Covid is behind us, they'll be able to come back bigger and better. Even though I know Skyloft is closing for good, I still have hope that somehow after we are free to go see our favorite shows again, somehow or another, Skyloft or another great music venue will reopen for us all. We wish the owners nothing but the best.
