Venue notes: West End Club, Chicago

Was located at 1175 W Armitage in Lincoln Park, near the corner of Racine and a couple of blocks from the DePaul campus. Defunct since mid-80s. (Thanks to Sumant Ranji and oioiman.)

James McNaughton adds (Oct 2006): "It was managed by Sue Miller, who -- after West End closed down and became a bike shop -- went on to book Cubby Bear and finally became co-owner of Lounge Axe. 10,000 Maniacs played there before their album broke onto the charts (my band Reaction opened). Rick Nielson from Cheap Trick was seen hanging out there."
