1/12/76 issue (previous week's ish was missing):
|"Scoop" gossip column excerpts.|
|First Tramps ad I've found. So far they've only been for cabaret acts but I'm collecting them anyway.|
|"Scoop" excerpt. Sounds like a potential Altamont II to me--thank goodness it was a hoax.|
|More from "Scoop."|
|"Centerfold" section excerpt.|
|Did they ever have bands here, or just bewbies? I seem to recall it mentioned as a rock club in a book or article somewhere, but so far the ads I've found for it only extol its titty-bar virtues.|
|Illustrations from a Christgau piece on the "rock-crit establishment."|
|The paper began publishing Robert Crumb's "Mr. Natural" comic in this issue. This panel made me wonder about the etymology of "fanboy." I don't recall hearing that term bandied about much until the '90s, so I was surprised to see it here.|
|Speaking of fanboys...I wonder if this article was reporting on the earliest known Trek-specific convention.|
|At first I thought the name of this store was "Bull," but as you'll see below I was mistaken.|
