art chantrySend art chantry a message :   this was the other one i was cutting up. this was opening night at the very first punk club in seattle. the police raided it and came in swinging billyclubs and busting heads. the lead singer (the gal) got a broken arm. a recording (people screaming, cops yelling threats, chaos) of the raid was included on the enemy's record "trendy violence".
seattle has always fought music clubs (it's still illegal to dance in some washington state cities). one of the big reasons there were so many posters and so many different clubs in seattle's punk history is that the city, the police and the fire department kept closing them down. the average lifespan of club (up until "grunge' made it profitable for yuppie lawyers to open punk clubs), was under 6 months. i think at the rocket we calculated that it was close to three months, tops. posters were the ONLY way at all that you could find out what was playing and where.
seattle's hatred of live music is one of the underlying reasons behind the poster band in that city.
