Trito’s Uptown was located at 6th and Green in Campustown back in the day, which played host to a ton of shows for many years. Seeing a show schedule like this is always inspiring, a way to remember a piece of our culture from the past. This October 1989 poster features some absolute juggernauts: Nirvana, The Jesus Lizard, Uncle Tupelo, Primus, Smashing Pumpkins, oh my.

I’d recognize that Ward Gollings handwriting anywhere. h/t to Bill Johnson on Facebook for this.
