The Hippodrome
aka
Touray Ballroom
Santafair
Federal Way, Washington

Some of the bands that rocked Touray Ballroom during those great years of NW music were:
Anthem
The Bards
Buffalo Clancy
Calliope
City Zu
Crystal Ship
Bearded Clam
Deacons
The Feelies
Front Page
Brian Hyland
Missing Linx
Penny Arcade
State Fair
White Heart

We used these at the Hippadrome (which was also known as Touray).  You will notice that Globe Ticket company in Tacoma misspelled Touray on the tickets.  What the heck we paid for several thousand of these and we were a low budget operation, so we used them anyway.
