The Metro, 379 Whalley Ave, seen in the top photo during its brief span of operation as a music venue in the mid-1980s. Middle photo, from 1960, shows the venue in its earlier form, as the Whalley Theater (for many years a small neighborhood movie house, it was renovated in the mid-1950s and began showing first-run features). Bottom photo shows the building in 2016 (when it was home to the Edge of the Woods Market), still standing, but with a completely different façade. Hüsker Dü played here on 06 May 1985.
