Housed in an old, abandoned 30,000-square-foot warehouse, (hence its name) this iconic space eventually proved to be the one of the best venues in the south during its 12-year run. Bringing in a plethora of impressive headliners, the venue booked the likes of Pink Floyd, Rod Stewart, Bob Dylan, Bob Marley, Led Zeppelin, Fleetwood Mac, and more back in its glory days. Just like the west and the east had the Fillmore, the south had the Warehouse. In its opening night, the Grateful Dead were arrested for possession of marijuana, and the incident was later immortalized in their song "Truckin." Unfortunately, the venue was closed in 1982 with a closing performance from the Talking Heads, and was later demolished in 1989.
