Actually, they are going to re-paint the stars (according to the First Avenue Twitter feed), and they're even asking for fan submissions. But still, it's sad to see that kind of history being painted-over.

it'll be interesting to see what stars do not reappear and what crap they decide to replace them with.
something tells me a ministry or a siouxsie star will not be back on that building...

Before they painted the stars they had band logos painted on the walls. Whoever was in charge decided to paint an Iron Fist logo on there. That was while I was in the band. It made me feel special.

The Rifle Sport star over the Entry door, placed there at the suggestion of Steve McLellan because we played more shows in the Entry than any other band, has been covered by the awning for years anyways.

But if they're redoing them, I hope they put it back where it belongs. I believe we still hold the record. Almost 14 years of regular shows with the same lineup.

I'm not sure if that's something to be proud of.. but there it is.

I thought at one point they had painted over all the stars and repainted them 8 or 18 years ago.
