Imagining Electic Circus, 2011

2011_04_electriccircus.jpgEV Grieve takes a look back at The Electric Circus, the raucous nightclub that was the go-to place on St. Mark's Pl. from 1968 - 1971 and gets to thinking: "Then I started thinking about the reaction if this very same venue would open here today... A hot club promoter (in this case, Jerry Brandt) ... celebrities... crowds from everywhere showing up on St. Mark's Place... how would the community respond? No bra night?!...Has the influx of bars and jackasses and woo-wooing in recent years made us intolerant of any nightlife?" [EVG]
