6/16/2005 - Joe Pio
In the early 80s was purchashed by Russ Gibb of Grande Ballroom fame, and housed a venue for a new exploding hardcore punk rock crowd. Despite the usually roudy crowd, The kids kept the place clean.

Gibb usually offering free admission and pay for kids that stuck around to sweep up and buff the floors.

Gibb sold the building to Cary Safarian,but due to Mr. Safarians substance abuse, the club soon started to fall apart, shows being closed by the Detroit Fire Marshall, as well as an ongoing problem with fights and nuisance. As The doors shut itself in the suummer of 87, it was later a storefront church, then finally sold and gutted the interior for an expantion of the neighboring laundry mat.

This old house started in the Depression area but could not survive the dawn of the television age in 1953. The building still stands.
