The Warehouse (New Orleans)
The Warehouse, located at 1820 Tchoupitoulas Street, was the main venue for rock music in New Orleans in the 1970s. It opened on January 30, 1970, with the Flock, Fleetwood Mac and the Grateful Dead. The Allman Brothers Band were regulars.
Rock history was made there. The Grateful Dead's arrest on opening weekend for drug possession would be immortalized in their song "Truckin'". On February 1, there was a "Bread for the Dead" concert to raise money for legal fees. The Flock could not stay but Fleetwood Mac and the Grateful Dead performed, and concluded with an almost 40-minute jam together on "Turn on Your Lovelight".
The Talking Heads performed there on closing night, September 10, 1982.
The Warehouse was finally demolished in April 1989.
