Where is it / Where are they - now?

Postby ExPatriatePen on Sun Dec 30, 2012 8:58 am

I was wondering about old landmarks / people (sometimes they're the same :) ) and wondering what ever became of them.

What ever happened to the Oakland property that was "The Decade"? I have a close friend who was fortunate enough to have seen Bruce Springsteen there.

It's now the Garage Door Saloon. It's amazing what a quick Google search will find.

There was a thread for that sort of thing, as I recall.

Graffiti Club which I saw S.O.D there in 1999 is a rich spoiled kids car garage if im not mistaken. Club Laga is now apartments in Oakland. I loved that place.

Graffiti I think turned into overflow for a nearby Porsche dealership that has since closed. Essentially the same thing though.

There was a thread for that sort of thing, as I recall.

It was somewhat discussed in JTOR or in Graffiti's case, let's talk about music.

Kenny the kangaroo believes there is some sort of plaque commemorating the Decade on the side of the building. The garage door saloon is a total dump, btw.

Also, club laga is now an IGA.

Saw RHCP at the Decade in 1989 (I think that was the year). One thing I do remember is that it was amazing fun.

Does this make me cool? Not sure. But I'm certain it's makes me old. 8-)

just being LT makes you cool. But yes, seeing a national act at a small venue is always worth a least one 'cool star' ;)

:lol: Thanks! Hahaha! Being greedy, I'm shamelessly applying for an extra half point for seeing R.E.M. and Robert Palmer (with the Irresistible Girls!) at Rec Hall at Penn State.

Establishing a pattern, I say you're cool simply because you're FC-fo-fo and your namesake gave us a shift of glory back in 2008. But, this submission is cool to me because I never experienced Club Laga (it was after my time) and always wanted to check it out. That place had some awesome acts during its short life.

It was cool, indeed. Way before Michael Stipe began donning Raggedy Ann dresses. NTTAWWT.

The Irresistible Girls were hilarious and fabulous. I loved Robert Palmer so much. R.I.P.

I saw Nine Inch Nails there probably around the same time. They basically played the Pretty Hate Machine CD along with one song that I didn't know.

I had to sit through Crazytown in 2001 at an Ozzfest. :(

Edit....also had the displeasure of seeing ICP I think in like 98. GWAR was touring with them and my old group of friends and I loved them. Im glad I grew up.
