Uhoh, I’ve stumbled upon what appears to be a bit of a mess…
This venue in MB has the address of 5000 Euclid Avenue.
The mess is, that according to the wikipedia page for this venue, the Agora Ballroom was previously located on East 24th Street until it was closed due to a fire in 1984, reopening at the current location on Euclid Avenue some years later.
According to our guidelines for places, the East 24th Street location should be entered as a separate venue entity. I will do this. But the mess is that all the recordings linked to the current venue with dates before 1986 are suspect as these are highly likely to have been recorded at the East 24th Street location and probably need to be updated to the newly-created venue.
The problem is that there are more than 600 such recordings …
Not exactly sure what is the best way to sort this out. Properly verifying hundreds of recordings is probably impossible for one person. I could just start submitting edits to move every recording based on date alone with no other checks? Does that sound like a good plan to people?
Any suggestions for clever tricks to batch-edit all these relationships more easily than doing it one at a time?
