An artifact of the Death of a Legend. On the right, the original gig promo poster. On the left, the revised gig promo poster.
Why the change in venue? There were three venues side by side on the west end Central Ave: Launchpad, Goldenwest, El Rey.
The Goldenwest, with beautiful oak longbar, burned to the ground. An employee left in open air a rag soaked in linseed oil. Boom. Accidentally torched.
The Goldenwest sat between the Launchpad and El Rey. There was significant damage to the Launchpad, sharing a common wall. All Launchpad shows had to be moved during repairs, mostly to the Sunshine.
Death of a Legend. Goldenwest, you are missed.
