List last updated 2/8/17

Little did the Leonards know that the cops would shut them down on this night for being too loud.
Too loud?  These dancers don't seem to mind the volume.

















Xenophobes used to wonder what evil lurked within the walls of the Banana, but in reality it wasn't unusual to see a nice family like this one, having a good time watching a son or a brother perform.


This elevated stage wasn't there in the beginning.  Anybody know when it was added?




Axis-Y at the Banana, probably 1993.  Courtesy of John Hargnett, at extreme left on guitar.  Others are, from left to right, Ed Dillon (vox/bass), Rich David (drums), and Frank Nemchick (guitar).  John is wearing the Black Flag tee shirt he purchased at their show on 10/15/84, which was also his first show as a fan.
