Re: "Nightclubbing we're nightclubbing," Feb. 27.
It's great for someone to finally write an article about Vancouver night life back when Vancouver actually had a social scene. I used to live my life to some degree at the Town Pump, where I had the opportunity to see such acts as The Stranglers, Dread Zeppelin, the Jazz Butcher, Alien Sex Fiend, Liabach and, of course, some of the great Vancouver acts such as Chrome Dog/Gorilla Gorilla, which was fronted by Bif Naked, Go 4 Three and She to name a few. But you also forgot to mention the decent food, which they served, as long as one wasn't face dancing on the floor.
You simply couldn't find a better place to hang your hat and see a good live show at a good price. Some other places worth mentioning would be the Warehouse and the Gandy Dancer. They're long since gone, but shouldn't be forgotten.
