The Station Nightclub
West Warwick, Rhode Island 

Exactly 4 years ago on this day, the 1980’s rock band Great White, was booked to perform at The Station in West Warwick, RI. That evening, just over 400 people entered the nightclub to see them play.

Due to a devastating fire caused by the misuse of pyrotechnics, 100 of those people never lived to tell about it. This post is in memory of them.
