Who'll Buy Their Dallas Punk-Rock Memories?

I've spent the better part of 20 years trying to find my box of old Hot Klub fliers, which I'd swipe off telephone poles on my bus drive down Maple Ave. to junior high in the early 1980s. Turns out, all I had to do was look here: Twilite Room Records and Punk Junk, which I found quite by accident -- via its eBay page, actually -- and where hundreds of those old local-show punk-rock fliers are selling for $9.99 and up. (Also available: old 'zines, tees, records and anything else proprietors Tanna and Charlie Gilder kept from the good ol' days.) Fairly sure this is the Go-Go's gig during which my cousin had his car towed from the Jack in the Box off Hondo. And I told him not to park there.
