Wow, that UCONN non-show was a trip. There’s more to that story than I can go into here, but that power outage was typical of the dark cloud that plagued Gobblehoof. If I remember correctly, there was a big-time UCONN vs. Georgetown hoops game going on right across the street that got shut down as well. As for that meeting at the Bay State, you’re really blowing the dust off my dome. I have a vauge recollection of that. J had just returned from a trip to Alaska. It was actually Alaska and Hawaii that I had never (and still haven’t) been to. I think that we were doing a ‘Hoof alumni show that evening. I think that it was Charlie on vox, Kurt Fedora on guitar, J on bass, and me on drums. But then again, we’ve all played that joint so many times that it’s hard to distinguish what happened when and with whom. Sadly, the Bay State closed recently. Fortunately, I was able to play there one last time with New Radiant Storm King, in the final week of its existence. Even though it was a modest venue, the Bay State will be sorely missed by the Western Mass. music community, and beyond. <img> <img> <img> <img> <img>
