This is the legendary Gaslight Square club that saw the St. Louis debut of and later a summer house band gig of "The Allman Joys".



The Acid Sette at Pepe's



Here's a tidbit I received from Kenny Jaworski:

I'm listening to Born Standing Up, Steve Martin's memoir.

He described working with a manager named Bill McKuen and relates this anecdote:

 "At Pepe's, a dinky club in St. Louis, he saw an act called the Allman Joys and brought them to Hollywood.  They changed their name to Hourglass and he represented them for a while before they became the Allman Bros. band."
