Venue notes: Metropolis, SeattleDefunct punk club. Was located at 207 Second Ave S, in Pioneer Square. Andy Scheen of Seattle, who attended the 16 Oct 1983 Hüsker show here, reminisced in Oct 2000: "[Metropolis] opened up in about the summer of 83 and shut down in the spring of 85. Great place, always all ages, live music 4-6 nights a week. The Metropolis still has legendary status to this day among Seattle 'old timers' -- there has never been a place nearly as good. It's extremely difficult to open an all-ages club in this town due to some really screwy laws. The owner's name was Hugo; I can't remember his last name, although I still see him around. He opened a coffee shop for a while and I'm not sure what he's doing now."
Upon reading the above in May 2005, Hugo checked in to report: "I am in Hawaii, leading a new project. See my website below." So, here's his website, Gypsie Nation.
