2 nights ago I learned that in my city during the 80s when hair metal was the big thing there used to be a rock/metal club. Many amazing bands such as W.A.S.P, AC/DC, Hanoi rocks etc performed there.

I’ve been watching so many videos, looking at so many pictures and read so many peoples stories/memories of the club. They all described it as a fun place where there was never any bad events or happenings, just people partying and bonding through their love of rock’n’roll. Many described their times at the club as some of the best nights of their lives.

Sadly, the club shut down in 1999. As somebody born not long after the club shut down who is a massive fan of hair metal, I’m almost heartbroken that I never got to experience such a place as this, as it’s the kind of place I’ve always dreamed of. But at the same time I feel proud and happy that such a cool place was in my city.

Above are some pictures from the club I found online. It looked like a such a great time.

“Alice told me that when he first used the snake in his act, she was a little nervous, but still very well behaved. However during a show one night, while Alice was singing, Chiquita coiled herself around his neck and body and, as she stared into his eyes, gave him a very scary hard squeeze. ‘She was just telling me what she could do to me if I ever pissed her off,’ Alice said. ‘And I try really hard not to piss her off.’”
