This was quite the experience. I used to come here in the late 80s/early 90s and just walk right in with my video equipment and film bands (with permission, of course). Now, they only let you bring in equipment if you have band permission… and there is no access to artists allowed. I have video’d both in the past, but I did not have an easy way to contact either one…

After a few minutes of fruitless negotiation with the venue, I put my equipment in coat check and tried to figure out how I could get permission. We got so lucky to find Penelope in the crowd, and she was SO nice and accommodating… even though it was last minute. She got me a video pass and off we went. I can’t thank Penelope enough- we really appreciate it!

Special thanks to Jim McLain for heading to the show and filming with me, and for the edit/audio matrix work. This is not an easy edit- we were both filming independent of each other and he had the “fun” job of trying to splice it together into a cohesive final product!
