I used to run the Armageddon Coffee House in SE Portland.  I am interested in locating anyone that used to volunteer or play there.

The Armageddon Coffee House was in SE Portland and located in a Big White Church.  It was in operation from 1969 to at least 1974.

Some bands that played there were Portland Zoo Electric Band, Soma, Mixed Blood, Brown Sugar, and Rapid Transit, to name a few.  All of Portland’s bands most likely appeared there at one time or another.
