I did TECH there for 2 yrs. That was a spooky space. as tech... we climbed all the time . there were places where nobody had been for 40 yrs. The staff were great... the mangament were royal ASSHOLES. No free drinks, no free friends on the guest list. it was like the nazi's running the whole thing right into the ground. Before it became "a club" i saw susie and the banshies,new yrs eve. with "the dolls" and many other bands. The club though will always get my upmost respect in the TECH field. it was MILITARY the way a crew of 10 could run that whole club with shows.the filming of "Carletto's way" was a memory to remember, Latin Thursdays . HIP HOP block parties on the weekends. Club MTV -w- Downtown Julie brown. (that bitch didn't even say "thanks" for a birthday gift i gave her on her birthday, cunt must have thought i was a nobody !!!! even though i was ! RIOTS, SHOOTINGS, DRUGS GALORE ... oh yea... the palladium rocked in it days. The END was .... needed what it became in it's last yr. was a SHAME. such a grand place. I saw the hole in the dance floor my last time in. it was gone 2 months later.
