Keystone Palo Alto with the Midnights a few times in the early 80’s and the Kabuki in SF. The old Sweetwater in 95 & 96. The “backstage” was the basement with a dumbwaiter from the bar. Marin Vets in 83 & 84 with the Dead and Warfield 83
Love the whole Marin complex. Beautiful. I visited the county building last time I visited. Must have been awesome to see a show there. Frank Lloyd Wright bldgs

I liked the Kabuki. For some reason it was the only place I ever saw Little Steven and Clarence Clemmons, twice each, but never anybody else.
We will understand it better bye and bye.

Westbury music hall in Long Island. We were I think second row. The place was tiny though, and any seat would’ve been nice. It was my 40th birthday! solo acoustic, my favorite kind!

I’d love to hear this!

Do recordings exist?

I’ve got the recording in my Apple Music. I’m happy to share it with you. I don’t know if I have any blank CDs and I’d have to find my disk drive but I’ll be happy to go through that effort if that’s the best way to send you the music. Is there another way to send files digitally? I bet I can download them and then possibly email them to you. PM me with any ideas

I guess Lupo’s Heartbreak Hotel, or Westbury.
Can’t find capacity for old Heartbreak Hotel. Just the strand. I have to assume it was smaller than The Strand.
Its a dark shade of sunlight that flickered on top of my coffee yesterday.....

I'm thinking Bobby and the Midnites @ Lupo's Heartbreak Hotel in early 80s.

I googled it and said capacity was 1580 but there were 3 versions I, II, and III before it was moved / became the Strand with higher capacity 1900

I'll have to figure that out. Do you know if it works with files from iTunes?

At first I thought maybe the Chance in Poughkeepsie (900), but after some research Ridgefield Playhouse, Ct. wins. (500)

It should work with any file type.

The free version has a 2 GB size limit but you will be way under that for 1 show

I forgot about the Kabuki. Saw Garcia and Kahn there in 84. Santana too, THAT was some sick shit.

Place held 700 people at the time. It's now a movie theater (I think).
