Lee Aaron played Erie in 1984

-ad in Showcase/Erie Daily Times, May 17, 1984.
This post is a special request from a reader in Sweden, who wrote: "This is a bit of a long shot, but will give it a try. I have an old bootleg video with Canadian rock singer Lee Aaron (The Metal Queen) recorded at some club in Erie in 1984 and I'm trying to find out where it was shot. The sound quality isn't that good on the video, but she says something like 'Down here at Change's in Erie, Pennsylvania tonight.' Was there a club called Change's/Chance's or something similar in Erie around that time? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Best regards. Johan Lee Aaron fan page."

Changes was located at 3619 McClelland Avenue in Erie, PA. Lee Aaron played on May 18-19, 1984 as part of her U. S. tour. If I had to make an educated guess as to who filmed her show, I would say it was probably Eddie DeDionisio.

The Erie metal band Satin Steel played Changes on May 17, 1984.

Changes had several different names over the years, including the Place, the Hullabaloo, Gadsbys and the Alternative. It was right between Skaterie Roller Rink and Eastland Bowl.
