Cambridge's T.T. the Bear's, which has been a big name in the Boston music scene for more than 40 years, is shutting down Saturday night.

Many of the well known rock bands from the Boston area --like the Pixies and Mighty Mighty Bosstones, who got early starts at the club in Cambridge — have been making farewell visits.

ARTery's Amelia Mason and longtime music critic Steve Morse joined Morning Edition to talk about the club's early days — and closure.
