And as for the underscore choice, the White Stripes weren’t around in the 688/Metroplex club days, but I couldn’t find any bands on Kyte.tv that did play there.

688/Metroplex Reunion Show Mix Preview


A special audio goodie just for Mostly Media readers… download a wicked mix of sounds from bands who once played the 688 Club and The Metroplex here. How many bands can you name?

Get those tee shirts, spikes and hairspray, and get ready to go… to Saturday’s 688/Metroplex Reunion Show at The Masquerade Music Park on North Ave. Atlanta, GA. Doors open at 6pm now. All info here. An interview with show presenters (and the clubs’ former owners) here. Parsley, sage, rosemary and good time yo ass off!

While listening, give it up for Mixmaster Mr. Tom Roche. On his blazin’ Avid.

UPDATE: The Stomp and Stammer cover story about the days of 688 infamy is out now – and here it is. Photos from reunion show now here.

688 Club/Metroplex Reunion Show 10-4-08

Steve May, Atlanta’s 688 Club owner and Paul Cornwell, Metroplex Club owner, talk about (click on above video) their upcoming 688/Metroplex reunion show at the Masquerade Music Park on October 4, 2008. Tons of bands that once played the infamous environs of those two punk/new wave clubs (both no longer with us) will be reuniting for this once-in-a-lifetime event.
Yes, it’s been a long time since the astonishing, groundbreaking 80’s Atlanta music scene, so it’s about time for a quickie flashback! Tickets are $25 in advance; $30 at the door. More information is at: www.atlantamusicmuseum.com
