Keystone Korner, in San Francisco, was a jazz and blues club in the late 60’s till1983. It apparently moved to Baltimore in the 80’s, which seems weird. I was only 18 at the time this photo was taken so would not have been allowed in to listen. There is some disinformation online that the club didn’t open till 1972. I didn’t time travel to the future 2 years when I took this photo, so I’m convinced it opened in the 60’s. On the bill when I took this photo ( on a very cheap camera and scanned in to an iMac) is Boz Scaggs and Benny Cecil and the Snakes (couldn’t find anything online about Benny on multiple search engines).
This was taken a few years ago when I was regularly visiting Portland, OR.
Just a quick note on the ads you are seeing. I’ve avoided allowing ads for ten years. WordPress nudged me a couple of weeks ago so I thought I would give it a try. If it turns out to be a bust or more of an annoyance than it is worth, I’ll figure out a way to turn off the ads. My guess is that only sites that generate a lot of traffic see any sort of monetary reward. My site, although having quite a few Followers, has very little traffic.
Went to the Blue Moon Tavern last Saturday night. Two local bands were having a record release party. Advertised as Seattle’s ” most infamous bar”. The list of literary figures that have spent time in the bar can be seen on this link. I like the one where Tom Robbins, the author, called Pablo Picasso from the bar and actually got through to him, but Mr. Picasso refused to accept the overseas phone charges. The murals in this post are on the west wall of the exterior of the bar and were taken with my iPhone.
