Cross-referenced coolness

If you're any sort of an NYC history or NYC rock & roll geek worth your salt (or a Minneapolis-area metal/punk concert review-readin' maniac for that matter), you should probably read This Ain't the Summer of Love in its entirety. But at the very least, you need to be hip to its posts on '70s NYC rock venue history, which plumb depths that this humble blog does not dare fathom. Here's a handy-dandy list of links to the places NYCDreamin' has covered thus far:


I don't know how he does it, but I'm so glad he does!!! And it's great to know there's a kindred spirit out there who's even more obsessed with tracking down such minutiae than I am. He also found some fun memorabilia on Trude Heller's, the Electric Circus, Club 82, the Cafe au Go Go, and the Cheetah. But seriously, take the time to absorb his entire site--you won't be sorry!

Speaking of '70s clubs, check out the facebook photo album of interior shots taken by N.Y. Rocker lensman Steve Lombardi. There's a link to one of his Max's pics in NYCDreamin's post, but the entire album is worth perusing for rare glimpses inside such joints as Great Gildersleeves, Hurrah, the Lone Star Cafe, the Squat Theatre, Tomato's, TR3, and Trax. Other albums on his profile feature '70s performance shots and scenester portraits too--click away!

Speaking of the Squat Theatre, why is I never hear anyone talk about it, or see any writing on it? Its like it never existed! Ever see this - http://squattheatre.com/ ?

I did stumble upon that Squat site some years ago, but definitely while looking for something else. ISTR a passing mention of it in some book, but darned if I can remember which one...

Maybe we'll get lucky and you'll be inspired to post about it sometime. Have a great weekend...
