It started at the Music Box in 1991, then moved to Wilkie House (where one night they entertained a small American band called Nirvana). Following that, it was at the Citrus Club, before returning to the Music Box (now The Liquid Room) in 1995, where it has resided since, as busy and as popular as ever.
