The Contortions, James White & the Blacks, Reasons, Information: Club 57, New York NY

Tim Page, New York Rocker, April 1979

THE CLUB 57 is located in the Irving Plaza, an aging downtown vaudeville hall that manages to combine the worst features of a European grand ballroom and a rural V.F.W. hall. Some horrid wood-panelling, for example, negates any pleasingly decadent effect created by the chandeliers and other elegant trappings.
