Allston Rock City: The events of August 1, 1987 are difficult to reconcile. A man nobody knew walked in to a rock club and shot one of the most beloved members of their misfit family.
The rock band Bang was wrapping up their set when a man who had been asked to leave hours before returned to the club, pulled out a gun and started shooting. It took no time for patrons and regulars to figure out the sounds were not coming from the band and everyone ran for cover.
That’s when bartender Abel Harris hopped over the bar and approached the shooter to reason with him to stop firing. Instead of talking, the man raised the gun and put two bullets into Abel's head.
The man no one knew left the club and the hunt was on to find out who did this to to someone everyone loved, Abel Harris.
