Hey, I was at that Devo show. It remains one of my favorite concerts. I was in the first row or so of the balcony, right where Mr. M clambered down that rope during the "Jocko Homo". I was sure the balcony was going to collapse - I could feel it bouncing up an down, but what is rock'n'roll w/o a feeling of danger (a bad concert, is what). I found a Devo fan site on-line that had a tape of the concert but I am afraid to possibly spoil the memory of that event. 39 f'n years...

Now I am remembering Julian's Billiards, another hangout of mine in that era.

Sadly, I never saw a show or even set foot in the place although I had tons of opportunities to do so, BUT I do have a nice b&w photo of it that I took in the late 90s. Even though it was way before my time in NYC I would've loved to have seen some of those Zappa/Baby Snakes era shows that happened there.

Funny you should mention... the only time I went when it was still a theater was to see Zappa. Maybe '80, or '81? Halloween or thereabouts. It was the Crush All Boxes tour, an album I don't think ever got a US release. Went once after it became a club too, but not for a gig. Hung at Julian's occasionally--went to a party for Rev. Horton Heat there, met him, but he was a little too drunk to chat. Nice guy nonetheless.

Uh... Wild Cat Mens Wear... LADY BOY???
