Two different paper-based items related to ... "The Bottom Line" (music venue) ... selling only as a single lot!

#1 ... from the late (1970's) ... original promotional "Show Special" flyer (8.5" x 11") ... offering for sale ($10), a specific item related to the (1977) music album "Oops! Wrong Planet" - only available for purchase during an appearance by the American rock band - "Utopia" (aka Todd Rundgren's band) ... the flyer (one-sided), is in VG condition - no writings stains or tears! ... it has a light, horizontal center-fold crease.

#2 ... (from 1979) ... a typed letter (8.5" x 11") ... apparently worded & printed by some of the "Waitressing Staff" ... addressed & presented - "TO THE PATRONS OF THE BOTTOM LINE" ... this is a unique "resignation" letter - it clearly expresses the feelings of some employees and explains to customers - reasons as to why some have chosen to resign ... mainly due to contempt by owner/management, poor salary and newly established rules & procedures (read text for full detail)! ... this letter (one-sided), is in good condition - no writings stains or tears! ... it has light creases - consistent with folds from once being placed in a wallet.

"The Bottom Line" - opened on (Feb. 11, 1974) ... it was an iconic music venue located in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City ... during the (1970s & 80s), the club was a major space for small-scale popular music performances ... it seated (400) people ... for three decades the club owners, (Allan Pepper & Stanley Snadowsky), presented major musical acts & premiered new talent - by offering an extremely wide variety of music & musicians ... in (2003), as a result of rent increases from its landlord (New York University) - the club was threatened with eviction due to several hundred thousand dollars owed in both - unpaid back rent & other expenses ... rather than risk a takeover, the owners closed the club before they could be kicked out ... the last Bottom Line show was on (January 22, 2004), just shy of the club's 30th anniversary ... the building now houses NYU classrooms.
