Bruce Springsteen at The Back Door - 1972

The flyer below is for three of the nine shows Bruce Springsteen played at The Back Door with his band in February of 1972, 39 years ago this weekend. The Back Door was located at 929 West Grace St, and has had many names over the years, including Twisters, 929, Chronos Cafe and Nanci Raygun. It's the current location of Strange Matter.

  2. Omit the Hubabas part of this piece I wrote. I was wrong and it was obviously not at 929, but next door, yet everything else is accurate - 929 Grace Street from '79 on...

  3. We use to go in here in the 1970's. Hababa's too. We use to get hammered and walk home to Oregon Hill. Sometimes we would all go to Aunt Sarah's pancake house up on broad street. Loved the 900 block of grace. Up Top Sub Shop right around the corner.
