This show popped up out-of-the-blue. I got a phone call-- remember, there was no Internet, no texting, no PMs, just the 'Pink Section' (if you remembered to look at it).
My friend says,
"Didja hear? Fat Jerry gonna play Berkeley on Saturday"
GTF outta here-- only one night?
OMG! (used to be called 'Oh My Gawd')
So off we went. I just blew all my $$$ on Chico, Arcata and Garberville and now He has His hands in my pocket-- yet again!!
Why is this show popping up now? Well, I got this email awhile back:
"You don't know me from Adam. I went to a lot of keystone shows in 81 and 82. I actually met you several times through a guy named Howard who was present at that time as well. And i know Matt who has been emailing you lately. I was wondering if you have or will ever post 3/27/82 from berkeley? imo it has one rockin sugaree to open. I also remember this show because of the more than usual number of hells angels. they had taken over the upstairs portion of that venue and while they didn't say so, it seemed like no one else was allowed up there that night. maybe it was just something i ate but i recall it being quite tasty. anyway thank you for all those shows you got up and hope your well."
Well--- here is it! However I don't remember "Angels in the balcony", but of course I was dosed to the max and very busy in the front row of the balcony trying the push all those little tiny buttons! It is a miracle this recording came out so well. Guardian Angels fo' sho'.
