Re: NJ Looping Festival

I at first wanted to suggest the old Emerald City club in Cherry Hill, NJ 
I saw the Psychedelic Furs on their first tour there in something like 
'80/81 - but the place closed apparently in 1983 according to this page.

The sound system was wonderful, and lots of nooks and crannies to explore 
leftover from its days as a [gag] disco).  Talking Heads, even Alice 
played there in '81.  Alas, it seems this place was turned into a studio 
before disappearing, though the domain's paid upto 2009...
