Danzig/Powerman 5000 flyer from 1997

"G33K4L1F3 turned into a Danzig/Powerman 5000 fan page so gradually that I didn't even notice."

This is a flyer from a Jan. 1997 Danzig concert in Greenville, N.C. It was a great show — not only did Danzig open his set with Mother (has he ever done that before or since?) but I was also introduced to Powerman 5000 that night.

I'm not sure whatever became of the club, which was called Characters. Nightclubs don't usually stay open very long, and this flyer shows they had a very ... eclectic roster for that month.


  1. I won free tickets to see Danzig way back in 1995. They played at the James A. Rhodes Arena at the University of Akron. Opening for them were two unknown acts named Korn and Marilyn Manson. It was a wild show.

  2. I got to meet Glenn Danzig at his Charlotte, N.C., stop on that tour but I couldn't make the show (Manson and Korn were also playing.) Still regret not going to that show ...
