Should have stuck to the mint pesto.

Oh I did! The poblano was just being chopped and frozen for later in the week. The mint pesto came out pretty good, although Minifobette thought it "smelled like skunk." I don't think she's ever smelled a skunk.

Got one in the neighborhood, for the last few days.

Smell it at night when I come home.

I learned I was wrong.
I've been adamant I saw Genesis with Peter Gabriel at the Walnut Street Theater in 1972.
Well I talked to someone who I know was there because his group shared.... uh, sat with our group.
He says it was scheduled/advertised for the Walnut, but the tight butts in Philly whined this would draw hippies, beatniks, and ne'er-do-wells to their posh neighborhood.
So Midnight Sun scrambled to move the show to the Tower Theater.

From the Tower's Wiki entry

Quote:
The Tower introduced America to David Bowie and The Spiders from Mars in 1972 as well as the then-unknown Genesis with Peter Gabriel that same year; Genesis played a midnight concert with a $4 admission price.
Was that the one?

Yeah. That would be fun.

I've seen a few unknown bands, but they stayed unknown. So I can't brag.

We had a huge advantage living close to the Tower Theater. It was sometimes called the Fillmore East because it was a must play for the groups on the verge of breaking into the bigtime. I saw so many acts there who were playing to crowds of 20,000 up, the next time they were in town. Saw a few like the Moody Blues, and Jethro Tull, playing the Tower after their arena days were over.

As a matter of fact Yusuf Islam(Cat Stevens) played there last week on his attempted comeback tour.

I'm surprised I was wide awake enough to work that out!

That's me done for the rest of the day, I suspect.
