    This rock club has been a big "underground" deal for awhile. It's been closed for a little while now, and the founder just died. The guy helped create something really special, if you like different music.....I guess different is a good adjective here :ha: A wide variety of bands have played there, even some of the biggest rock bands (in this small, narrow, dingy looking craphole).

    My band played there about 5 years ago, hell we thought we'd made it. Well we didn't end up making it, but it was one of the best times of my life.

    Sad news indeed.. The last few years were horrible for Hilly.
    Played there in the early 90s with my Fl. band. Nuthing like lugging your expensive music gear on The Bowery, but we made it out alive.
    RIP Hilly..

    I was wondering if you'd played there CC. Does sound like the whole rent deal was a serious downer. Screw the man! :grrr:
