A year ago, locals let out a cry of protest upon hearing the Lee’s Palace mural, perhaps The Annex’s most recognizable symbol of ‘90s nostalgia, would be torn down to accommodate a Big Fat Burrito outpost.


Though most agreed the burrito place was probably a good thing (some of those pre-show lineups are epic), they mourned the loss of the colourful, original mural monsters that had come to signify great live rock.


Soon, however, those laments turned into cheers when it was announced that the mural would be repainted by original artist Al Runt. Last spring the new wall debuted, wilder and brighter than ever.
