Elvis played (and was egged) here. Hendrix played here, too.

Site of Elvis Presley's Philly debut in April 1957, in four concerts that featured his 20-minute set - one of which was greeted by a rain of eggs courtesy of a group of Villanova University students. The Jimi Hendrix Experiene smashed their instruments on March 31, 1968. The quote is from http://articles.philly.com/1992-09-18/news/26021555_1_sam-cooke-movie-house-streets.
