Oh, how I miss the Cypress Lounge, which closed a month or two after this. They had some of the best shows, but didn’t get enough support from the community to keep their doors open. This is what happens when people don’t come out to support their scene — you lose all your best venues.

Heed that lesson.

Classic punk here: CBGB guitar strap, tattoos, cigarette and loads of attitude. I miss Cypress Lounge, but I definitely don’t miss that table ledge along the side I kept getting slammed against all night. Ouch.
