7th St Entry

Since 1980

The 7th St Entry is a smaller venue (capacity 250) attached to the historic First Avenue (capacity 1550).[21] This space was once used as a restaurant area (the “Greyhound Cafe”) in the bus station, before it became the music venue that is known today as “The Entry” among the locals.[22] “The Entry” opened its doors in March 1980 (under club Sam’s) as a venue that catered to local bands.[9] The 7th St Entry is a venue where smaller and lesser known bands play (more popular bands play the First Avenue main-room). Several recordings have been recorded live at The Entry, including The Scouting Report’s hit song “Over the Ocean”; Hüsker Dü’s first album, Land Speed Record; the song, “Cables,” on Big Black’s Atomizer album; Rifle Sport’s live album, Live at the Entry, Dead at the Exit; and Motion City Soundtrack’s, Commit This to Memory live DVD.
