Coliseum Comes to New Haven May 19
In the blocks surrounding Café Nine (corner of State and Crown streets, New Haven), you’ll still find old bumper stickers on signposts pleading that “New Haven Deserves a Coliseum.” They’re referring to the old New Haven Veterans Memorial Coliseum, of course, but it’s still good publicity for the nasty punk/rock band Coliseum, which plays Café Nine May 19. Coliseum the band was formed (in Kentucky) in 2003, four years before New Haven’s Coliseum was imploded. You can expect an implosion or two at the club on Saturday. This is a loud outfit.
