Check out the latest page of Golden Gate Riot, okay? It takes place in front of a vintage clothing store named Channel One. Channel One was actually a real place at 736 The Alameda, San Jose, California, and it really did sell vintage clothes and records. They went out of business years ago, but they also had live shows there when I was a teenager.
Here's a list of bands I saw at Channel One:
Shut Up Donny
Ten in the Swear Jar (some of the members went on to form Xiu Xiu)
The Aislers Set
Bright Eyes (at the time, it was just one crazy dude yelling at his acoustic guitar)
Mates Of State
Spike And Princess
