San Antonio, Texas
must be mention of Love Street in San Antonio next to Hemisphere.
I met Tiny Tim there one night and partied with him and his
The club was cool. It was an old Movie Theater and had seats
going up with a stage and a dance floor in front of it, then
the tiers of seating going up all around it.
Stage right there was upstairs a restaurant bar with more air
conditioning and glass that looked over the stage with sound
reinforcement in the bar, but a little different atmosphere
with tables where you could talk but still look over to the
theatre and stage.
The light show was unique in that it was rear screen projected
in two floors of six or eight cubes with dancers silhouetted
and they would change each individually or together, not much
different than the stacked big screens in concerts today....it
was a cool club.
I think Love Street at Allen's Landing was the best but Vulcan
Gas Company in Austin and Love Street San Antonio are definitely
worth study and documentation. All were unique in their design
as a club for the environment at the time as well as were the
light shows part of the design and experience.
