Cubby Bear * 1983

|November 30, 2009 | Photos Of J.Yuenger

Here’s me, aged 15, playing in my first band at the Cubby Bear in Chicago. For a very entertaining 1984 local TV feature on the unique Sports-bar-by-day, all-ages-punk-club-by-night scene at the Cubby Bear, go here. It was filmed at a show by the great Canadian punk band D.O.A., and I remember that day very well. I loved D.O.A., and I couldn’t go because I was grounded.
