I’m posting this photo because Georgia Straight writers Adrian Mack saw EVERY punk band before punk was even invented and John Lucas lays claim to seeing No Doubt at the Warped Tour in 1995. But – ha! – I saw them at the Town Pump in 1994 on a Tuesday night when they played to a smattering of people. Sorry to brag. I just don’t get to do this very often when it comes to who saw what, first. The above photo is one of two frames before somebody belonging to the band’s management ran over and told me to stop.
Speaking of Vancouver’s old music venues, I took some photographs at Richard’s on Richards the last night (which happened to be last night, no less) it was open. Those will be posted soon.
