Venue notes: Backstage, Tucson AZ

Short-lived (1981-82) punk-rock club that was located at 321 N. 4th Ave in Tucson. Reports indicate that the room was spare and boxy, with — ironically enough — no backstage area or dressing room. Period photos show an extremely low stage, maybe 1½-2 feet above floor level. At least one account attributes the club's demise to a fire that destroyed the building, so it's uncertain how much (if any) of the present structure at that address (housing a vintage clothing shop as of 2017 and for at least 10 years prior) is original or has been rebuilt.
