Hot as hell in Mac Court! No AC but feeling no pain. A weird weekend as a buddy of mine got shot! The lady I took passed out from the heat and excitement of the show.
That's right, it was an oven in there. People tripping their skulls out, sweating like horses.... the band was pretty trippy and drippy that night, the Pranksters going nuts with the Thunder Machine....vintage night in Eugene!
Too drained from the previous 3 nights but a delight nothing to be in the Mac Arthur Court mystique ...
Cool graveyard !
this is the show where i danced so constantly i finally identified with the drums. Sweat poured all over my face and into my eyes, and still, i kept dancin' like it was nobody's bizness.
Babbs actually became a spirit during the thunder machine space of a man who had just croaked...he sex, "I tried, and i tried and I TRIED!!!!" by the cosmic trash bin. very nice.
keep your character, enjoy living, share your fortune,
