I drove up Alta Vista this evening and sadly, was unable to confirm that I show could have taken place here. But, I think it's possible. There is a fairly new (new as in the last 20 years) apartment complex at 1402 Alta Vista and another one at 1420 Alta Vista...nothing in between the two. The street is pretty swanky now, but this is almost in Hollywood...just a few blocks into West Hollywood and the neighboring streets are all residental, single homes. I feel that there was once a 1406 and it got knocked down to make way for the apt complexes.

I figured that was a possibility - still, considering the proximity of that Alta Vista to the general area that the band played the rest of their shows, it feels like the top contender to me.

I changed the show to Los Angeles, CA - left it as unconfirmed and mention of the two other theoretically possible locations. Hopefully we can dig up something else to help lock down the show's location.

Did some quick googling, and according to LALife.com, the majority of that block is indeed mostly new.

For the side of the block that 1406 would have been on, there are only 2 buildings.

1402 N. Alta Vista was built in 1986

1420 N. Alta Vista was built in 1987

The other side of the block has one newer building and one older building:

1409 N. Alta Vista was built in 1991

1403 N. Alta Vista was built in 1960

Nice work vikkivale and helicine!
Thanks as always for looking into this for us vikkivale. :heart:

I'd say based on your work we can say with some certainty that it was indeed a show in Los Angeles.

Leave it to the L.A. resident to prove what a dumb ass the Cleveland guy really is. :inspiration: :lol:

I'm in the process of updating the gig list and was more carefully looking through this thread and I'll be damned if we still don't have things right. :lol:

According to vikkivale's post I think this show would have happened in West Hollywood not Los Angeles.

Am I right?
