More great Orlando rock photography from Jim Leatherman's 25+ years in the trenches

A few months ago, I posted about the photos that Jim Leatherman has been sharing with his friends and colleagues on Facebook, and, with his permisison, posted a handful of those photos on the site. Well, apparently Jim got a little more time to spend with his scanner, as he’s recently been indulging in Round 2 of sharing his archives. These photos are just fantastic; as with the last batch, there are a few shots of Rob Thomas/Tabitha’s Secret in there, but this batch has a lot more national acts. (I also included a handful of out-of-town shots, mainly because I have a deep, nostalgic fondness for the awesomeness of the Einstein A-Go-Go.) You knew Green Day played Club Nowhere (what is now Redlight Redlight), right? Some of you do, but I know that a lot of you don’t. Check out shots from that show, and lots more, after the jump:
