3 JUNE 1984

6.3.84 poster

This was the first and last show here, unfortunately. It was set up by Doug Ernest, who was then drumming for Vicious Circle, and eventually joined Verbal Assault. No one had any idea how many people were going to show up, and the cops shut it down halfway through. The club was right in the heart of the tourist district in Newport, so it was a trip to see a bunch of kids flood the place and the sidewalks outside.

Not long after the club closed down, and the building is now-what else?-a Starbucks.
