Located at 144 Hill Street, this house was a basement club in the early 1990s featuring all-ages shows by bands around the state. It was closed down in the spring of 1993 by the police for code violations and running a business in a residential area.

Great job posting the shows, but there are a few missing. I remember seeing a female-fronted Royal Oak band called Bastard Squad there and another time seeing Seattle band called Zipgun(2 different shows), but I don't remember if my hand Made at played or who else opened at those shows. Pretty sure BS played with Social Outcast tho. (Jan 16, 2017)
