The original Exit (seen in the undated top photo) was located at 1653 N. Wells St in Chicago until 1992. The site then became a bar called Tequila Roadhouse, seen in the next two photos. At some point, the "Tequila" part was dropped (middle left photo). By Jun 2007, when the first Google streetview image was captured (middle right), the space was apparently vacant. It was still vacant in Jun 2011 (second from bottom), but was showing signs of life when the last image was captured in Oct 2014. Hüsker Dü played at the original Exit on 24 (possibly 31) Jan 1982, 17 Dec 1982, and 01 May 1983.
