Who’ll stop the rain, in the sound check, worked. First Northeast show of the USA tour. Amazing show.

Prior to this show my last show was August 16th @ the Meadowlands. Drove up from New Orleans with a Tulane Basketball player that was later expelled for being part of the point shaving scandal. He got us the tickets. Top 5 free shooter in the nation at the time.

What a memorable night. I went, hoping for a certain ‘surprise guest’, and hit Lucky Town! Bonds was fantastic, and a great live performer. I remember, when his set ended, I started to wade through the crowd towards the low stage. When Bruce came onstage, the crowd went wild! Up against the stage, I was dancing and singing, and he was on fire! For me, it was a thrill of my young life. After the show, I remember that Bruce and some guys in Gay’s band hung outside a bit, near the bus, signing autographs. I didn’t go forward, but instead, gawked for about 20 minutes, watching him at ease, friendly and gracious.

Not an eyewitness account -- just a question. Isn't this the date Bruce talks about in his book on which he played his first west coast gig in Big Sur? According to the book it was a New Years Eve show, preceding the Steel Mill shows at the Matrix, the only show that Tinker had booked before leaving NJ, and for which they had three days to drive across the country?
