I won free tickets back in 1990(?)from WFMU to see Boss Hog at Maxwell's by answering a Russ Meyer trivia question. If that ain't specific of an era in the good OLD New York City, I don't know what is. Great show. One of the few times I saw anything there. Kim Gordon's band Free Kitten was the opener but I missed them :(

Sorry, I don't have a guess... But i love your detective work on one of my favorite bands...

The photo might be in the southwest corner of Tompkins Square, that's where the chess tables are now at least. It does seem like that could be E 7th St behind them, not 10th. I know the Blues Explosion (and I think also Boss Hog, Surgery and a few other of *those* bands then) shared a practice space on A (or maybe B?) just above Houston for years. I used to work for them! (At their old label in Mpls.)

That said, I do know Jon and Cristina (and Bob as well), and could ask them myself, if you like.

Nah the other corner ave. A and 7th st (behind them) where the chess tables are today. And yeah the other shot is the Gas Station -- wild card: the forge that was on Forsyth or was it Eldridge--MF

⬆️That guy's got it. I was thinking the opposite corner, with 10th behind them, towards Ave. B. But I can't remember chess tables there.

South west corner on Tompkins Square Park.
