Quite the lackluster run - offset by the killer JGB shows at the Warfield immediately following. Carlos Santana jammed with the band from Space to the end of the show - nice treat.
For the previous seven shows I was stuck out in the parking lot[not that Oakland's Shakedown during this run of shows didn't rule] even though I worked a sign and tried to barter for tix I got shut out repeatedly. Finally I made a sign saying something like"I need a mircale, been shut out seven in a row will give the shirt off my back and anything else I have that you want for a ticket to tonights show"[I actaully listed a bunch of my possesions to sweeten the pot and show I was serious],I started with this sign at the Oakland Taco Bell at 10am,I worked it all day[actaully managed to get some money and herb together for the ticket]then around 7pm[show was about to start]I gave up and threw my sign down and two seconds later I hear a woman behind me say "I wanna give my ticket to this guy", I turned around to see and she handed me the ticket [said something like she saw me trying to get in all week and all that day]I can't explain how I felt,although I did give her and her freind the biggest hugs and thanks ever[she wouldn't accept anyhting for ticket said to keep what I had and enjoy the show],so I proceeded to run into the show,"never had such a goodtime"....
