Hey, so I have only ever been to Distikt I think they call it, and it seems like its only a bunch of 19 year olds? Is there an older ish club in town. Back home they usually have a few for the 25 ish crowd?

Definitely Swans.

Well I was going to comment but then noticed by "older" you referenced the '25-ish crowd' so I thought better of it and backed off :).

 

When I was 25-ish "older" usually meant anything beyond mid-late 30's. Now that I am 55 "older" in terms of night time hangouts in my mind typically means 40+. Clearly OTOH if older these days is 25-something I need to crawl back onto my rocking chair with my electric blanket and return to watching M*A*S*H re-runs....

Secret Coffee House   (early 1960's)

1417B Government St. Victoria BC

Tony Else managed The Secret Coffee House which was in the basement of the Westholme Hotel on Government Street. Roy Mercer and I assembled yet another singing group called The Minstrelmen and Tony had us do a weekend gig to open for his headlining act. Later we added a fifth guy (Bob Cross, ex Mayor of Victoria.) Then Roy shipped out and we became The Chariot Singers with Irene Harris, who was a nurse in training at St. Joe's. Tony brought in Valdy, Pat Paulsen who tried to walk across the Inner Harbour and also ran for President with the same result. There was a local favourite duo of Murray McAlpine and young Robin Ross who wistfully interpreted the ballads of the Chad Mitchell Trio and Peter, Paul and Mary. Mike Gibbs
