    That, I believe is the Palomino in North Hollywood, and it was far from being plush! It was a cool little place but a rather difficult venue to see someone play due to the L shaped main room. See how the stage looks boxed into the corner? Off to your left was the long narrow half of the L, with the bar on the left hand side (it’s just out of frame on the left of the picture) and tables lining the center and the right all the way to the front door entrance. The floor your’e seeing in front of the stage was the main part of the venue, a square shaped room that didn’t hold more than maybe 75 to a 100 people tops. There was also a back patio which they used when the club got too full…it had a wall that separated you from the rest of the joint with a big picture window cut into it so you could still see the show….only problem was that you couldn’t hear anything and usually couldn’t see much either…even worse, once you were out there they wouldn’t allow you back inside the main part of the building unless someone left. This picture’s a bit deceptive in regards to it’s size though…in the snap it looks a helluva lot bigger than it it actually was. Still, it was a neat ol’ place…when they started booking rock n’ roll in addition to their normal roster of country performers, it was a fun place to hang out.
