Tuts was one of the first active punk clubs in Chicago, open from 1980-84. Located on the corner of Belmont and Sheffield, Tuts routinely played some of the best and most active alternative, punk and post-punk bands from around the nation. The more well known location of Tuts (953 W. Belmont) was preceded by The Quiet Knight and replaced by The Avalon. A list of bands that played there include Bob Marley, Tom Waits, R.E.M., Prince, Run D.M.C., The Cramps, Naked Raygun, Black Flag, Bauhaus, The Stray Cats, Psychedelic Furs, Echo and the Bunnymen, and The Smashing Pumpkins.
