    In early March, just before South by Southwest organizers canceled their festival over COVID-19, New Yorkers Amber Mundinger and Kevin Condon had a grim realization: Hundreds of music venues around the country were likely to be closing for good. Mundinger, the chief operating officer of Artists Den Entertainment (the company behind the television music series Live From the Artists Den), and Condon, a photographer who'd just had a year’s worth of jobs canceled within a week, talked about how they should document the shuttering of bars, clubs and theaters.

    I’ve spent many afternoons trying to make sense of the infinitely jumbled world of commerce that is the Los Angeles swap meet. It’s mostly clothing, jewelry, electronics and luggage stores, but there’s also baby Jesus statues of every skin tone, oil paintings of Michael Jordan with his arm around Kobe Bryant and LeBron James, replica samurai swords, banh mi and live music. Vendors produce custom T-shirts so rapidly that their slogans read like a screen-printed alternative to the newspaper front page: “Rest in peace Nipsey Hussle,” “RIP Kobe and Gianna,” and the overly optimistic “I survived coronavirus 2020.” These days you’ll see a lot of masks, gloves and face shields. And inevitably, you will turn a corner and find yourself caught in the menacing gaze of a parakeet from a swap meet pet shop. I’ve been thinking a lot about swap meets lately, because as we confront deep economic uncertainty...
