it's ok! well ya know that all you see is not not real... in certain (ahem) circumstances ; )))
of course on the other shoe... all that is real is revealed, if you look at it right!
But everybody's acting lazy
Falling out and hangin' 'round... you now who's back in town

I must have missed...

... Phase one, in which Doris gets her oats...
And shall we talk about the early days of Winterland? My grandparents took us there in the late Fifties, or the early Sixties to see either the Ice Follies, or the Ice Capades, I'm not sure which one. I liked the shows that Bill put on there MUCH better...

Dagnabit!

I have no recollections of this venue (from the wrong coast, sorry, and obviously skating on thin ice here) but I am waiting to see if Doris the Pygmy Pony puts in a cameo, even if she's out of phase in Montana...

Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.

Got hung up on finding info

Got hung up on finding info re: Family Dog at Beach as I have some fond memories of the site & other ballrooms since I was living in the Haight before the 'invasion' and was part of most of it; sometimes had to get back to NYC for a reality check. All the usual concert halls - Fillmore, Avalon, Winterland, Carousel, Matrix were close to transit lines, could Chet have found a more out of the way place? Aesthetically marvelous as i recall - years have passed & many barrels consumed at the time so somethings are missing but maybe others can fill it in. Above the dance floor, encircling it were 2 - 3 rows of seats, Chet had put in a bandstand at each end so they'd be no set-up waiting time. In the back was a flagstone patio w/a well and the 'refreshment' stand for mind & body. So great to feel the coolness of the stones as the music came from indoors and the stars were visible w/o the city lights. Does anyone recall who played in June/69 when the archives show 'no acts listed'? Remember autopiloting my ford convertible thru GG park loaded w/people returning to the Haight - drop off at the donut shop across from Kezar. Yes, like most others who could, I moved to SanAnselmo when the speed & violence became too much.
