DH picked up tickets for us to see Crosby Stills Nash&Young's "Freedom of Speech" tour on August 8th at the Sound Advice Ampitheater. This will be the first concert I've been to since we got married in 1996. Prior to that, I went to hundreds, my first being Patti Smith in Central Park back in 1978. Actually, I can tie in concerts to handbags because back in those days I was a rocker, not into disco and I carried eveything in the pockets of my Levi's. When the Police did their first US tour they were playing at the old Palladium on 14th st and I wanted to wear the jeans I had on the day before...I may have been into torn patched up jeans but I was ALWAYS clean so I washed them...when I pulled them out of the washing machine I saw all these tiny white pieces of paper-yes ladies I WASHED MY TICKET and I was DEVASTATED!!! I thought I'd be able to scalp a ticket but back then the scalpers were getting 100 which was a FORTUNE in 78-79 so my 2 friends ended up scalping their tickets and we hit Maxx's Kansas City instead. There was always artsy people selling their crafts outside and my friend Bridget bought me a tooled leather handbag which was the coolest thing I ever seen and a steal at $25.00! Anyway, I am really to excited to see CSN&Y !!!
