weezer show #32: Club Dump [The Central], Hollywood

Club Dump was held Thursday nights at the Central, a Sunset Strip club in Hollywood that much later was bought, re-modeled, and reopened as the Viper Room. Way back then it was anything but glamorous, in fact it was pretty skanky! But it was one of the very few clubs that had a booking policy that made any sense, and who actually sort of catered to non-glam/metal bands. The club was run by a curious guy whose name was Yowsah! [including the "!"]. Yowsah! used to be roomates with some members of Wax, and he was originally from Hawaii. He led a sort of dirgy punk band called "Methadone Cocktail", and part of playing his Club Dump shows was often sharing the bill with his band.

Club Dump had a video camera operator who would take overly special effected videos of bands shows, if bands ponied up $10 for the tape. Weezer almost always went for the deal....but not this time, for unknown reasons [possibly no one had $10 to their name!]

setlist: unknown.

Also on the bill were El Magnifico, Monkey Paw, Joyride, and Silvertrain.

Today in Weezer History: 11/12/1992 - Weezer show #32: Club Dump (The Central), Hollywood - Club Dump was held Thursday nights at the Central, a Sunset Strip club in Hollywood that much later was bought, re-modeled, and reopened as the Viper Room. Way back then it was anything but glamorous. But it was one of the very few clubs that had a booking policy that made any sense, and who actually sort of catered to non-glam/metal bands. The club was run by a curious guy whose name was Yowsah! (including the "!"). Also on the bill were El Magnifico (whose drummer Jon Pikus had just engineered the bands 3rd and most official demo tape), Joyride (featuring Steve Soto formerly of the Adolescents), and 2 other bands we know little about now. Pink flyer art by Karl, the green 'standard' flyer was crudely modified by someone in the band to make Weezer's name stand out. Show setlist: unknown.
