Back in 1996 on a hot Sunday night in June I was bored out of my mind. There was nothing on HBO, in the movies, and in the mood to do something. While at my desk I found a handbill for Maritime Hall and noticed Big Brother & The Holding Company would be playing that night. With nothing to do and figured I had nothing to lose but ten bucks and some gas, I decided to go see Big Brother.
When I got to Maritime Hall there was about twenty people. By the time Big Brother took the stage there was maybe 50 people. At the end of the set it was about 75 people. Sometime after Big Brother took the stage, KFOG announced that Melissa Etheridge would be performing with Big Brother. At the end of the show there were several hundred people outside wanting to get it.
A week earlier it was a Moby Grape reunion and the following week it was Zen Snap ... aka the original Its A Beautiful Day.
I'm not a fan of Etheridge but on that night, she was awesome doing the classics, Down on Me, Ball & Chain, and Summer Time.
Enjoy the show ...
