Thirty-Four Years Ago Today

Without question one of the five best nights of my life for multiple and wonderful reasons, pre-show, show, and shazam! post-show.

Here is where I was going to engage the daily clusterfuck, but fuck it. Here's a show I was at in 83 at Merriwether:


  1. Heh. Excellent shrooms, excellent place, excellent music, excellent people, excellent time.

  2. "Weather Report Suite" in a raging thunderstorm.

  3. Saw them in 1978 or 79, and became a fan.

    (Didn't stop loving Led Zeppelin and the Ramones, just added the Dead to the play list.)

  4. Had a chance to go to that show, IIRC. It wouldn't have been the first time I'd hitched from Chapel Hill to a show in Derm in or about that time. FZ! Santana! Springsteen! Prolly couldn't scrape up the scratch.
