||First Avenue/7th Street Entry is one of the great rock venues of the world. There have been shows there since the 70's, before it had its current name; concert scenes for Prince's flick Purple Rain were filmed there. The dB's played 7th Street Entry on their first tour in 1980, before the first album came out -- and returned many times, graduating to the big stage (First Avenue) in 1984. The joint is still going strong. On the outside wall there are hundreds of stars with acts' names on them. Will took this photo when he played there with Steve Earle & the Dukes in March 2005, not the first venue he's played at for a quarter century.
