Saw the Ramones there in 1978! Yeah baby!!

Y & T
Then Yesterday and Today, they made regular appearances here. I went every chance I got; they typically played two set and so you could buy a ticket for the early show and the club would usually let you stay for the late performance for free since it wasn't close to being sold out. Two shows for the price of one! Sitting mere feet away from Meniketti lighting it up is a lasting memory from my teen tears...

Awesome venue
One thing about the Old Waldorf was you could reserve a dinner seat. This would give you a seat up close to the stage. We never missed 'The Tubes' when they played here. Fee and The Tubes put on great performances at the Old Waldorf. Awesome memories of this cool venue.
