there was a series of shows held at the old cresent ballroom that were all legendary. tacoma was such a backwater for seattle, that nobody really played there much. except these great shows at the old cresent.
man, i saw a butthole surfers show there once that has flames licking the wooden rafters. place is gone now (of course.)
no, actually, when i first saw this i really thought it was an old poster by mark michaelson that i hadn't seen before. it looks so much like that period of his work (here in seattle back around 83) that i had to double take and even look up maynard'sbio to see if it was mark.
