1983.09.16 - The Co Co Club, Los Angeles, CA - Psi-Com

Post by Mike »

OK so I was able to unearth some listings for The Co Co Club. These listings mention Scratch Magazine. One of them is for a show on September 9, 1983 and the other is for a show on September 16, 1983. We know Psi-Com had a show at the Fiesta House on September 9 so that rules that date out. That leaves us with September 16. Unfortunately the listing does not mention Psi-Com so we will have to track down a copy of Scratch Magazine Vol. 1 No. 12 to get to the bottom of this.

There’s a lot more info and research involved in these “Scratch Magazine“ shows posted here in the forum. It was all posted together in the Psi-Com gig thread but I split it up when we redid the forum last week. I would repost some of that here but that would be a lot of work. You can easily check it out for yourself by visiting these two threads. Unless Eric wants to work his magic and duplicate some posts into this thread?

In the upper right hand corner of this page from the LA Weekly is a pretty cool article about Scratch Magazine. I think it’s a must read and strongly suggest checking it out. :reading:

Here’s a cool little blurb about The Co Co Club from right around the time this show would have taken place..

Weird, I have absolutely no recollection of this Co-Co Club at all.
