Tinder Is Killing It...Live Music Venues, That Is

Or at least it is according to an anonymous Melbourne promoter.  Cherry Bar owner James Young, posted an interesting discussion he had with this promoter on his Facebook page.

According to Young’s post, he told this person that 2015 has been a tough year, to which he or she responded that Tinder is what is killing live music and pubs.  “This is how young people "pick up" these days. I see them in the office. They're on it (Tinder) all the time. They're not going out to clubs and pubs to pick up anymore. They're just picking up their phones,” said the promoter.

The argument seems pretty valid.  There are thousands of posts and arguments out there about how social media is killing real life social interactions.  Tinder, in this case, seems to be killing regular romantic interactions, ultimately depriving live concert bars from hosting people that are trying to pick up a date.  The dating app, with over 50 million users, became an exciting window of opportunity to meet new people, especially those who are somewhat shy and would not risk it at a pub or live concert bar.  This has apparently decreased attendance at establishments that offer a comfortable environment for potential couples to meet.

“And when they take their dates out for the first time, they try to impress them with some chic dining experience, rather than a rowdy live music experience.”  Once the date has been acquired, according to this promoter, they plan to meet at some fancy place instead of a live concert or a pub to avoid the risk of losing their date to someone else.

The post raised a lot of comments.  Many of them claiming that the visit to pubs and such places has become a luxury and people actually have to save money to go.  Tinder has offered a bypass to such expenses, according to users. 

For now, there are apparently reports of places being closed due to drops in revenues. Do you think that Tinder is killing romanticism?
