Memories of the Now-Closed T.T. the Bear's Place in Cambridge

photo of the now-closed T.T. the Bear's Place, Cambridge, MAAs many of you know, the landmark music club T.T. the Bear's Place closed its doors in Cambridge over the weekend after being in business for more than 25 years. I'm definitely not the only one who has great memories of the place (one highlight for me was seeing The Dead Milkmen there years ago), so it might be nice to reminisce about some of the great bands that made their way to the club over the years, along with memorable nights spent there and perhaps some of the lighter and funnier moments from the spot (as long as they're relatively clean!). If you'd like to share some of your memories of T.T. the Bear's, please post in the comments section here and I'll put up a number of them below.

"I can't really highlight one memory. Just always had a good time there and I can't recall ever seeing a bad band there. Some stood out more than others... Orbit comes to mind. And, since this is a restaurant site, I will mention I did have the cheese and crackers there multiple times! ;-)"

"Mull historical society acoustic, and then club courtesy The Scissor Sisters amazing"
-- Lyndon F.

"Saw Buffalo Tom play all of Let Me Come Over on the 10th?anniversary of its release."
-- Owen M.

"I remember TT the bear's in snowy winter '89-'90: 1/2 of Vasco de Gama were out on Cape and couldn't make gig. Show went on."
-- @dfphil

"Might have had too many nights of bad decisions at TT's to discuss at present. Wait for the memoir... #BostonYouth"

[T.T. the Bear's was located at 10 Brookline Street in the city's Central Square neighborhood.]
