Did you ever see a show at JB Scott's in Albany back in the 80's? If you were there you know what a treasure it was. If you never made it to 321 Central Avenue in Albany, you can always say you did.

JB Scott's was only open for about 3 years (1979-1982) but in that time everyone from John Mellencamp to Judas Priest, Meatloaf, Thin Lizzy, Pat Benetar and more performed in-front of no more than 600 people. 40 years ago today (11/13) U2 played JB Scott's. Were you there?
