WakePollyannaon 2009-Sep-15 at 11:35:01 GMT-5: Mrs Mitchell played the Berkeley Community Center on March 1st and 2ed according to her bio on Wally's web page. I, along with friends was at one of these performances, any one else was?
I'd got wind of when the tickets were to go on sale and had gone to Sears, in San Jose, to buy them at the Bass outlet. The gal saw how excited I was and said she would punch in the code ahead of time, into the ticket machine, when the tickets went on sale mine would be the first it would spite out. Almost the best seats I've ever had at one of her performance. The best being on stage at the Isle of Wight, just behind the Who's tower of speakers, fifteen feet from her.
For her to pick up Robben Ford, who had been tearing up the South Bay Area only months earlier, but had moved on to Los Angles to further his career, was my dream come true. She was HOT. That was one Whale of a show.
Here's the thing. When we stepped out of the center, after the show, it had hailed and the Berkeley streets had been turned white....? There were thirteen of us and no one said anything, as we were still floored from the show. Then my girlfriend said, "Is anyone going to say anything about the snow on the ground?"
We all agreed that there was snow on the ground, something that never (seldom) happens in Berkeley, but "WHAT A CONCERT".
