July 26 2006 - May 2 2009


Disgraceland was a few blocks from downtown PA.


Disgraceland was an unlicensed venue that operated in the basement of a home in the mid 00's. Many Punk and Metal bands played there. The first show was with headliners "Self Rule" and local support Burning Camelot, Dishonourable Discharge, and Cheap Excape in 2006. The show was set up after the new management of the Apollo bar dropped the show. Disgraceland at that time was considered to be born in the wake of the "old Apollo". Shortly thereafter, Disgraceland started to gain popularity in the local scene. In the first year there were several notable shows including "Disgracefest",(an all day all local festival) and "Gate Night Bloodfest" (Devils Night themed show that just recently had its 4th annual installment at Kilroy's). It quickly became the choice punk/metal venue in the community with help from the nascent community forming at Baycore. Over the years, several bands had their first sets at Disgraceland, and grew artistically with the help of the venue. Amongst those bands were Trench Foot, Bottom Rockers, Revenge Of The Mormons, and DEAD. Several notable touring bands played at the venue as well including punk legends The Ripcordz, and the U.K. Subs. The final show was in May 2009, when someone went upstairs and spray-painted a peace sign onto the wall of one of the bedrooms.
