Punk goodfella-turned-celebrity chef Jason Seibert has donated a wonderful cache of flyers to the Che Underground archives. These artifacts span the late ’70s through the early ’80s and document events at the North Park Lions Club, the International Blend/Kings Road, the Zebra Club and the Skeleton Club.
It’s high time we take note of that last venue, which did so much to hone the cutting edge of San Diego music. (Full disclosure: Tucked away in North County, I missed out on the Skeleton Club during its brief but influential run at 202 Market St. and 921 Fourth Ave. under the management of rock-’n'-roll nurse Laura Frasier and a young Tim Mays.)
I believe the chronology runs from 1978-1980, but it will take our digital village to connect these dots. (While I’ve found a few fleeting mentions on Wikipedia and elsewhere, online Skeleton Club references are few and far between.)
Help us tell the Skeleton Club story!
