priorities, priorities

Two things stick out in my memory about these shows. I left San Francisco, which had been hit by the Loma Prieta earthquake on Oct. 17th, to go to North Carolina, which was still recovering from a major hurricane (Andrew, I think.) Some one from a local radio station interviewed me in the hallways about the fact that I was smiling despite following disasters around the country. Also, I met a woman in NC whom I had met on a train from Paris to Munich in 1986. She had overheard the Dead playing on my headphones and asked me about it. I gave her some spiel and recommended a bunch of books from "the hippie canon." When I saw her that day in NC, she told me she'd read them all and gotten totally sucked in!

These shows were at the old Charlotte Coliseum on Independence Blvd., which is still standing and is called Cricket Arena.

The rest were at the Charlotte Coliseum on Tyvola Rd. which was imploded in June 2007.
