Keep Your Ticket and other movements to support live music

2020 is not going to be remembered as a good year for live music and for life in general as well. We know that we are going through difficult times, but there are some good things about it (or at least we hope we have learned something from all of this situation).

Zur Gruam is a small bar located near the Alte Utting that opens until late (in Google Maps said it’s open…
