Old Waldorf Alumni
Judas Priest, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Pat Travers, Eddie & the Hot Rods, Warren Zevon (I think) and Y&T were others who played there. Awesome club-lots of fun

Old Waldorf - Steve Perry
This is also where Journey introduced Steve Perry as their lead singer.

Metal mondays
Saw quite a few Metal Monday shows there in early 1983. Exodus a few times ( with Kirk Hammet), Laaz Rockit, Brocus Helm, Harvey, Anvil Chorus, etc. There would be maybe 15 people total in the entire place (bartender and bands included).
