Greetings from Brooklyn NYC

Postby Skeletonpete » 30 May 2011, 09:33

Hi -

I'm a life long Rory fan, who was lucky enough to sit a few feet from the man during his 1976 performance at the Bottom Line Club in New York City. A personal reminiscence and ticket scan can be found at the link below.

A link to my written coverage of the recent "One More Rory" Tribute show at the Iridium Club will be posted in the appropriate forum section, with photos to follow later in the week.

Glad to share. Hope you enjoy.

Thanks for the warm welcome gents,

Glad to have a few things of interest to share.

The Bottom Line bootleg is from the night before I saw Rory. I was pretty meticulous about recording those broadcasts off the air back in the day. I used to get my parents - bless 'em - to push the buttons and flip the tapes if I was actually at the show. I have to do some basement archeology and see if I have a cassette of that in "the archives". Thanks for the reminder, you've given me a mission.

The Bottom Line always had two shows a night. Diehard fans of any act could purchase tickets for both shows and plant themselves for the evening. I was usually "point man" for the early show, arriving at noon to make sure my friends and I had a space right up front. I can't even estimate how many hours over the course of 20 years I spent sitting outside that place waiting for the 6PM doors.

It is a much missed venue here in NYC. Fortunately several similar venues have opened recently here in Brooklyn. The Bell House, Southpaw, and Brooklyn Bowl have more than picked up the slack and are even closer to my home.

Best,
Pete
