Since posting the DH and the FS gallery I've received tons of e-mails but this one killed me.

I got this in the mail. I think it's going to be in a book on "The Eighties" (No Nancy, the ninetine eighties!) It's me and Julian Schnabel at the Palladium, 1985. This is Messy Bonie Raitt's grandmother.

OK the Palladium, before it became a glitz pallace it did have some great rock shows. Like Nick Lowe or The Plasmatics One night Wendy O blasted the hood off a White Caddy and almost took out the people in the first five rows when it landed in "way" the wrong place. It being punk times they loved it and screamed for more. Needless to say Wendy never quite topped that moment. Wendy did come back and do the buzz saw act in the Mike Todd room but it was just not the same. She did shock some of...

She also did that show at Jackie 60. Only at Jackie there was a "pee" element that mixed with hardened raw eggs still smells to this day I'm sure. I tried bleach, everything. I just could not get that pee smell out.

I know I said that I never liked The Palladium but that's not really true. I didn't like the "trying to pretend it's Studio 54" thing that permiated the first year or so. The Steve & Ian "VIP room to nowhere" sort of thing. (If it wasn't for Haoui Montaug running the door it would have been a TOTAL nightmare) but... I DJ'd there for many years and have to say there were some brilliant things about the place too. The tech for instance -lights, video, staging etc. was the best I've ever...

Ah yes, the Lambada! I also remember that puzzling Voice ad, searching for "Lambada Bartenders!" Jayne County was just reminding me the other night about Gabriel Rotello's stint in the Mike Todd Room, Anita Sarko, and the night I did a dance on a table, wearing an orange micro-mini with matching cape, with-- Steve Rubell. The table collapsed, and so did we.

Back in the day (1991-ish) for a while I frequented the Palladium on Tuesday nights for the Love Machine. It was really fun. Lahoma Van Zandt was the hostess and she used to fall down all the time. She was anorexic-thin and sometimes she smelled kinda funky. I also think Lee Chappell was involved somehow also, I don't remember who the DJ was but it was someone famous I think. Girlina was one of the drag regulars and there was some queen who would show up in Queen Elizabeth the First drag.

I remember the Palladium having alot of great art. I can't remember when but they had this big Keith Haring backdrop and some other art on the back wall. One time this guy in silver body paint was sitting against this painting and when he left there were silver hand prints all over it. I also remember the Love Machine tuesday night party, I think this was after the union square place closed. They had a room downstairs right next to the men's bathroom that I remember being in one night, small...

Against all odds - Palladium was undeniably fun. No one believed it could be hip - it was just too big, but somehow it all pulled together. I saw some great shows there: Gwen Guthrie, Kid Creole & The Coconuts, El Grand Combo, Grace Jones, Debbie Harry, Joyce Sims, even Vanity 6! Sister Dimemsia DJ-ing in the Michael Todd Room. I used to wonder just how much extra insurance the club had to carry to have banks of televisions on hydraulic lifts spinning over the dancer's heads. The art...

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.

What a great topic. I just re-read it. I don't know if I agree with you nite porter, I think the best shows ever in Mike Todd were the nights that Tom Cruise used to go in that back tech room with his yuppie boy friends and... Oh, gotta go.

Palladium opening night was a zoo. 1984 or 1985 if i remember Jerry Rubin did his wednesday networing parties there after he stopped them at the Fleishman owned studio 54 . . also remembr a big Grammy pre party there around 1992.. model agencies did some christmas parties there in the VIP area MTV did its corporate christmas party there once or twice, which we crashed. fun days. Always did the Michael Todd room. became a necessity when the place turned bridge and tunel.

Networking parties, Model agency parties, Corporate parties and Yuppies... The Palladium was the beginning of the end of New York Night life. When Chi Chi walked into the club on the opening night she just looked around and said, "This is a temple of shit".

Can totally believe the part about people in creative fields earning less the past year than any other. There's no arguing with data. But the Dave Clarke comments? Makes us wonder what he was looking for and if he knew where to look. If he was expecting to find a club like Fabric at its peak, he's not going to find it here.
