The Rogue Theatre opened its doors in 1938 as one of the few theaters built during the heart of the Great Depression. Crowds filled her seats to watch Spencer Tracy, Clark Gable, and Marlene Dietrich on the silver screen. News Reels brought home the battlefront during the “Big War.” Through the fabulous 50′s, and the turbulent 60′s the theatre attracted crowds to downtown Grants Pass. As years passed, the advent of television, multiplex cinemas and shopping malls made it difficult for the aging theatre to compete. Closing it’s doors in 1999
Koffin Kats & G.D. Gallows live at The Historic Rogue Theatre in Grants Pass, Oregon.
Fusing the swing of classic rockabilly with the hot-wired energy and ghoulish imagery of the Misfits, Detroit’s the Koffin Kats prove that high-octane psychobilly is still alive and kicking in the American Midwest. The Goddamn Gallows came from the heart of America’s Rust Belt, arising from a night of flophouse violence. Drifting across the states, they cemented their sound in Portland, OR and later in Los Angeles, CA, where they lived in abandoned buildings, squatter camps, storage units and shoebox apartments.
