Anodyne Walker’s Point Roastery (224 W. Bruce St.) is joining the ranks of other Milwaukee venues in requiring proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test for entry to its live shows. The new policy begins Friday, August 20.

“We want to ensure we are doing everything we can to help keep our community safe,” reads an Anodyne press release. “Effective Friday, August 20th, we will be requiring the following for entry to live shows: proof of vaccination OR proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of the show.”

Masks are being encouraged, but will not be required.

Anodyne has a slew of solid shows lined up for the fall, including SistaStrings and Johanna Rose (September 12), Trapper Schoepp (November 5), and Brett Newski (November 19). “If you already purchased a ticket and are now unable to meet requirements, we can issue a full refund minus non-refundable Eventbrite fees,” says the press release.

Other local venues and festivals requiring proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test include the Pabst Theater Group venues (Pabst Theater, Riverside Theater, Turner Hall Ballroom, The Back Room @ Colectivo), Cactus Club, The Cooperage, and Summerfest.

Please, please, please, please get vaccinated.
