Marquee for the Starwood (Flipside)
From Flipside: "As for the Starwood, the club began consistently booking punk bands in 1980 but was permanently closed down in 1981 due to the Club owner Eddie Nash's drug bust and involvement in the "Wonderland murders". Nash owned several clubs that featured either New Wave or punk music (basically the few legit clubs that one could go to to go dancing or hear live punk/new wave music) including the Starwood, the Odyssey, Phazes in Reseda and The Seven Seas. But Nash was heavily involved in drugs and with organized crime."
