Sons and Daughters of No New York: Bush Tetras

Andy Schwartz, New York Rocker, October 1980

PAT PLACE: Guitar. Age 26. Born and raised in Chicago. Arrived in New York in 1975. "I was a visual art student... I came here to live because I thought there was more going on in the art scene, 'cause I was interested in performance and stuff like that. And when I first arrived in 1975, there was a lot going on there. But then that really dried up and I started going to clubs, and that seemed a lot more interesting to me."

Total word count of piece: 2822
