Venue notes: Mi Casita, Torrance CA

This place is a Mexican café in Torrance (24650 Crenshaw Blvd, 213-957-4718) with a performance space featuring salsa and merengue. It seems that punk rock was not ordinarily presented; Ed Nystrom (along with his brother Andy) roadied for the Jan 1983 Hüsker Dü show there, about which he noted, looking back in Aug 2001: "That show may have been the one and only gig of its kind ever held there." (Black Flag, the Minutemen and the Descendents shared that bill with the Hüskers, and Ed recalls: "The one thing that always sticks out about that show is that Henry raged through Flag's entire set wearing white briefs only.")
