Trading Post NEVER had a concert hall, nor did any of the below groups every perform there. I was a regular there for about 2 years about 1971 to 1973 and they didn't remain open much longer than that.

So wrong Karen , The band did play there, I seen New York Dolls Areosmith, and so many other great bands, you must have been under a rock to not have seen or heard of them playng there, that was a great place to party and see bands up close.

There was a hall of sorts in there, a raised stage and I opened for NY Dolls Detroit Wheels and more there. Denny Mclain stiffed us on the last show and still owes me money! Wont be holding my breath for that cash.

I loved the Trading Post! I got my one and only tattoo there in 1973. Janis Joplin heart on my left breast. Hurt like a mofo! If they used the same technique today as they did then, we wouldn't see so many tattooed folk!

The trading post had a stage in the back left part of the Arcade,
My band Silver Skull played there two times in 1974,@ that time
Denny McLain was a part owner and the bastard never paid us.

I did see The Rockets, NY Dolls and other local bands perform @ the Post.

You got that right. I think there are many more people in line ahead of you (Peet Packing Co employees...).

We would get dropped off at Crowleys at Macomb Mall by my parents then run across Gratiot to the post. Remember the smell of potchuli, black light posters, candles and bought my beloved stone there.
Seemed like the concert hall in the back was big. Saw Rush.

Does anyone remember a small mall across from Macomb Mall back in the late 60's, early 70's that had some head shops, tshirt shops, arcade and fast food joints? It was a teen and early twenties hangout, and I can't for the life of me remember the name of the place.
I remember The Trading Post. I was 15 yrs old. Me and my gf, were high, we would hitch hike there. Walk Down like 3 or 4 long isles, of hippie stuff. When you get to the end of the row, there was a small venue for concerts. I saw The New York Dolls there.
