I happened across this matchbook a month or so ago.

It has two different names on the same matchbook (with the same phone number).

below: Inside the matchbook is this list of entertainers.

After a few google searches I found this 1957 photograph showing the nightclub with the two different names (8572 Sunset Boulevard).

I wonder what the difference is between the two nightclubs. Was one more formal than the other? Did one feature musicians, while the other featured comedians?

I just noticed the "Dinners" sign under Crescendo....perhaps the Interlude didn't serve food, while the Crescendo was more of a dinner theater.

below: Interesting fact:

Mort Sahl was the first comedian to appear on the cover of Time magazine.

1960
