Recording: Audience


  1. Forgot to (try to) post Google StreetView of the approximate place the picture in the post is from:,-122.3406889,3a,75y,106.52h,85.01t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1s1SBPI6Lk-DmwbGJ6UxlhQQ!2e0!7i13312!8i6656

  2. Hm - and comments are out of order :/ I was curious so I looked up Astor Park and found that it was a club on the corner of 5th and Lenora until it was closed in 1987 and demolished in the 90's.
