I spent many a night closing down Cantone's. Also The Club in Cambridge and The Underground in Allston.

I love the history! Wish I were around for that.
,
New place, great owners w, and super cheap and full of all sorts of weird finds -- Store 54 in Allston. Looney Tunes just moved over there since Berklee bought up their old space. Definitely worth checking out!

I also love the owner of the 40 South Street vintage store in Jamaica Plain.

I just remembered another place: Night Stage, outside of Central Square in Cambridge.

This link has a great "memory lane" list of defunct Boston clubs...

I was the head bartender at the underground and it was great! First U S show for the cure and orchestral maneuvers in the dark!

Bunratty's and the Underground, both in Allston. Nuggets Records (still open) and Storyville, both in Kenmore Square. Johnny D's in Davis Square (still open).

Miss the Rat and Hoodoo Barbeque, no other place came close to it's vibe.

I saw the Dead Kennedys at the Underground once. Otherwise, I have many fond memories of the Rat, Bunrattys, Penalty Box, and Jack's. Actually, in the late 80's, I had a rent controlled apartment between Jack's and the Plough and Stars.

BTW the Dead Kennedys played at the Middle East on Monday night with the Welch Boys.

I used to mosh at Big Catholic Guilt shows- including their "last" show at the Rat. The Rat had great rodentian sculptures downstairs.

Nobody's mentioned the former great epicenter of Fenway - that being Tower Records. Tower was killed by Virgin records in a hostile takeover by Virgin buying the building and kicking Tower out. When they did that, the whole vibe there died and virgin was gone a couple years later leaving a poor substitute of Best Buy.

Two other losses were Daddy's junky music and Wulitzers.
