Description

(Uknown Author)

Through the glass doors (behind that car in the middle there) and down a wide carpeted curving stairway walked thousands upon thousands of people down through the years. A renowned and ritzy nightclub hosting performers like Shirley Bassey in the 1960’s, by the early 70’s it was one of Sydney’s most well known rock venues by reputation alone. There was actually a time when rock groups didn’t even have demo tapes to shop themselves with, and here’s a place that let that happen. If you wanted a gig there, you auditioned by playing there for one set, early in the night. Cool, huh? Probably played host to just about every single well known Australian rock band during those years. On this day, 31 December 1973 (38 years ago!).

AC/DC played their very first live gig at Chequers Nightclub in Sydney, Australia.The line-up that night included Dave Evans up front on vocals, Angus and Malcolm Young, Larry Van Kriedt on bass duties and Colin Burgess on the skins.The reported set list from that night:
School Days
Honky Tonk Women
Get Back
Jumpin’ Jack Flash
No Particular Place to Go
Nadine (Chuck Berry cover)
I Want You (She’s So Heavy)
The Old Bay Road
Midnight Rock
Show Business
Rock and Roll Singer
Soul Stripper
Rockin’ In The Parlour
Can I Sit Next To You Girl
Baby, Please Don’t Go
By the latter part of the decade the place was in decline and closed, then re-opened for 6 months in 1979 under the name of ‘RAGS’ in a failed attempt to bring punk bands and such to a larger audience. Re-opened yet again in 1980 for a brief period, but soon closed it’s doors as a music venue for good.
