1/30/69 "Riffs" review on Vince Martin and the Colwell Winfield Blues Band.

4/17/69 "Riffs" review of a Bob Gibson show that turned into an impromptu folkie old home week of sorts--written by Ellen Sander.

5/8/69 "Riffs"--the club is mentioned in Annie Fisher's diary of a week in concertgoing in Miami and New York.  "The au Go Go is sparsely populated, as the Scene has been too many times recently when I've been there, and I wonder again how so many people can cheat themselves of the excitement going on in the clubs--Ungano's too, as I gather from the ads, as well as Gerde's--almost every night.  Everybody loses.  Howard Solomon is close to closing the au Go Go."

I'd like to note that the ad you've included from McSorleys Ale House predates its admittance of Women. It was " liberated " by Nanette Rainone of WBAI-FM for women in 1970!
