Ultraman - Axis Club
Here is a flyer from the late eighties. It is from the notorious Axis Club near Fort Worth's hospital district (not a good part of town). Fort Worth had a severe lack of clubs and punk venues until this one showed up. It caused quite a stir for the short time that it existed, and lot's of now famous bands toured through it. Nirvana and Babes in Toyland are a few that ring a bell, along with quite a slew of DC bands. These bands were not well known at the time, as punk had not made the transition to grunge that happened in the early '90's. Ultraman was one of the later Hardcore bands. I went to the show, but I do not think I ever made it inside to see them.
