damn, i havent been to memphis in a long lonely time! anyways, i heard that the Antenna shut down a few years ago. So what's going on at 1588 Madison these days? anything worth noting? if not, where is the action at these days?

the olde antenna club... topic of a lot of conversation these days... somehow it's missed, something that while it was open did not seem possible. it turned into the VOID, run by the grifters soundman martin (i think), then barristers moved to that location with a major upgrade (painted ceiling & floor, cleaned it up a bunch, new bar)... then gradually that didn't work out. now it's MADISON FLAME, a lesbian bar that occasionally hosts rock shows- Oblivians record release party for the 'Play 9 Songs' album was there. That's the scoop up til now. For the rock, there's Young Avenue Deli, Map Room, High Tone, Last Place On Earth, Murphys and a couple of warehouse spaces. Is that really it?

i seem to remember somebody had a web site with antenna pictures... maybe more from the hardcore punk scene. i'll snoop the web when i get a chance.

cool, thanks for the link - that was focused a few years after my time but still pretty infotational.
The part i liked best about the Antenna was that they would laugh hystericly at my fake id but they would always let me in!
one of the 1st shows i remember seeing there was a memphis girl-garage band called The Hell Cats. man they were hot. did anyone ever hear of them?
