I can't believe no one has written anything about the Second Chance yet.

This place (originally called "Chances Are" IIRC but that was before my time) was a cornerstone of my musical education. Saw the Ramones there twice and threw beer on them; saw Iggy Pop and- during 'Pumping for Jill'- watched as he did a high kick, caught his foot atop the on-stage bar, landed on his back and kept singing all the while; saw Cheap Trick, Billy Idol, the King Bees, Stray Cats, Duran Duran, on and on and on.

Watching the Second Chance become the Nectarine Ballroom was akin to having to watch the Rolling Stones join the Lawrence Welk Orchestra. That was a turn of the page for sure.
