« Say What? | Main | Autoamericana: Blondie at the Clocktower? »

January 16, 2013



When I think of some of my fondest musical memories of the nineties, Tramps inevitably comes to mind. To add to your list of shows there, I'd scratch in Shane MacGowan, who frequently played Tramps with his post-Pogues band, The Popes. I also seem to remember a 24-hour dinette/bagel place down the block that was either called "Lox Around the Clock" or simply had a neon sign that read as such.


Saw the Bussiness there 1994 first time ever in the USA--Awesome show!!There were people from all over --Boston, DC, seemed like all the skinhead bouncers had taken the day off for the show.Love yor blog!


Did you ever go to the earlier Tramps, Alex? About a block east of Irving Plaza? A much smaller (and better) venue hidden in the back of an old bar. Saw Of A Mesh, Flowers, Fly Ashtry there... Maybe '88 or '89?

Can't say that rings any bells, H. There are two bars on that particular strip (between Irving Place and Third Ave) now ... Shades of Green (or something cliched like that) and one other. The former space?


I'm pretty sure the earlier Tramps is now Shades of Green. (Cliched name, but people who work there are very live music though, that I know of.)


Shades of Green is the site.

i had beers with Killing Joke in Shades of Green once. :)
