Mr. Smalls Theater
All recording, mastering & transferring done by CopyKatz Engineering. Taping, recording & sharing great
music since 1972.
Feel free to leave comments (positive or negative) so that as I dig into my vault for future postings I
can make them better for yinz all. As Irene, my mom, used to tell me ... "If you're not going to do
something the best that you possibly can ... Then don't do it at all!"
Let me begin by saying that only a handful of times have I went to a show without a ticket in
hand ... this was 1 of those times. I arrived about 20 min. before the doors opened & figured
that there would be someone with an extra that they needed to sell or trade. There were about
20 yinzers hanging out. After meeting the young ladies in front of me & a little BSing ... I
loudly asked if anyone had any extra that they wanted to sell (didn't want to have to go
through my pockets at the ticket window) anyways ... about 2 min. later another old-school head
came up to me asked if I was the person looking for a ticket. Of coarse I said yes & he then
handed me a ticket. I asked what he wanted for it & his reply was, "Just buy me a coke inside."
But when I found him, after I set up my equipment plus got turned down on my request for a sbd.
feed, he renigged on our deal! He wouldn't allow me to buy him a pop. A few more times
throughout the show I tried to fulfill my end of the bargin ... to no avail! I'm truely sorry
that I forgot his name ... but I will find him again at some show & will not take no for an
answer on that occasion to fulfill my end of the bargin for the Mickey ticket!!
On to the show ... for those of you that missed it ... fer shame ... fer shame! The band was
tight as hell & both sets were non-stop! I don't know if the following had anything to do with
how hard that they kicked it out, but Mickey was unable to wear his brain cap, as at the
previous show problems arose. The doctor, from Penn State University, that invemted it was in
the house trying to repair it ... to no avail (Mickey called him out on stage & introduced him
to the audience at the start of the second set). So those in attendance never got to see what
goes on in Mickey's head. They featured his released just 2 days earlier album "Superorganism",
playing half of it throughout the night ... it is definately 1 to add to your collection! Go to
your nearest music store & purchase it ... you won't regret it ... or you can go to where in
just 1 day it reached #1 on the charts ... Itunes ... & get the files along with the artwork.
Also throughout the night a handful of Grateful Dead standards were played (and each 1 rocked)
If I Had My Way (a.k.a. Samson & Delilah), Aiko-Aiko, a really sweet Bird Song, The Other One,
Fire On The Mountain & The Pump Song (a.k.a. Greatest Story Ever Told).
I also would like to give a shout out to all the friends that I ran across at the show ... some
of which I hadn't seen since 1989 & 1990! It was great hanging out with all of yinz again!
A special shout goes out to Kev for his spiritual enlightenment for the evening!
