The Pogues with Joe Strummer in Vancouver at “Expo Hall”? May 31, 1988

November 29, 2014

I was the staff photographer for a local Vancouver newspaper and photographed gigs from time to time. I talked with Joe Strummer in the back before the show. He was standing outside the back room smoking while Shane MacGowan and the others were getting totally hammered. He really wasn’t a happy camper.

I don’t remember the name of the venue as “Expo Hall” but can only find the reference to the gig on the listing here.
