The Run To The Queen City

Yikes… we drove down to Cincinnati yesterday for our gig at the 20th Century Theater. Barry and I played there in 2003 with our pal Cindy Cashdollar . It was a Sold Out show then… and guess what…

Two words we love to see!

    Great show; wanted you to know that we stopped across the street at Subway and had their monthly special – Jalapeña tuna; i.e. Hot Tuna, before Hot Tuna!

    Congratulations on the start of the 15th year! A testament to the quality of instruction and most of all the good feelings we get when we get to make it out there. May there be many more opening weekends!

    Just wondering if you play any of these songs any more – gone through the set lists at various venues and they are conspicuously absent.

    North Wind Rise
    Hamar Promenade
    I’ll be all right
    Roads and roads
    Sleep song
    Letter to the North Star
    Highway Song

    there’s one old song i can’t remember the name of – some of the lyircs go “Hear an angel say – living ain’t so great – with each passing day – sunshine turns me round.” Or at something like that.

    So good to see my old hometown bringing out the red carpet for you guys. So cool to see the Old 20th Century being used as a music venue. I remember when it used to be a movie theater. It brought a big smile to my face when my niece, who lives around the corner, texted me that you guys were playing there. Just trying to do my part to keep the younger generation in the know. Happy to know she’s listening. Thanks for all the great music you share…

    Yes, the old 20th Century holds many memories. Dad took my brothers and me one New Year’s Day to see Jerry Lewis in “The Nutty Professor.” Many other great films later on, too.

    Then, the 20th Century Theater fell onto hard times. The marquee was not lit up at night. The roof was leaking. The marquee became home to a flock of pigeons. There was talk of tearing it down. Then, the marquee was wrapped in chicken wire to keep out the pigeons. Unfortunately, the chicken wire imprisoned the pigeons that were nesting inside. For years after that, I’d wince every time I drove past because there were dead pigeons in the marquee.
    But, now the 20th Century has rebloomed and is a significant venue for music lovers in the Queen City.
    The Hot Tuna show on Thursday was exceptionally good and was a real treat for me because it had been several decades since I have seen them play here. The last time was with Papa John Creech, at Music Hall if I remember correctly.
    Thank you, Hot Tuna, for a really great “SHOE!”

    Glad to see your keeping it real on the road. FYI My hometown has the first claim on the Queen City moniker. http://www.plainfield.com/history.aspx
