Opened on January 30, 1970, the Warehouse was one of the premier venues for rock music in New Orleans for several years. The first band to play the Warehouse was Fleetwood Mac, with the Grateful Dead playing the second night. The Dead were arrested for drug possession that opening weekend, and this experience was immortalized in their song, "Truckin'."
Jim Morrison's last live show with The Doors was here on December 12, 1970. Morrison slammed the microphone repeatedly into the floorboards, breaking through the stage, then sat down and refused to perform. Five months later he was dead in a Paris bathtub.
The Warehouse was demolished in April 1989.
