Slim on The Howard Theater


"I been going to the Howard Theater since the late 70's. We’d always go to Chuck Brown and all that. Howard Theater, that’s a legend man! Why don’t you all open it up again so can go up in there and party now? That’s what we looked forward to from Friday til Saturday or holidays. We always looked forward to that spot right there…Rare Essence, Trouble Funk, Chuck Brown. But, Chuck ain’t play there too much, he was too big for them. But, then my mother told me about going there when she was coming up. She used to go and see Sam Cooke and James Brown.

"First show I went to see was so cold, the pipes froze then busted on us. They pulled us out, we didn’t get our money back. They didn’t tell us what was wrong at the time, just told us to get out. That’s all it was man. They had a security guard, Officer Robertson, that was his name. Yeah, he pulled us out. He was head of security, used to beat people up. He took you out, took your money and took your drugs if you had any. That was the first show I went to."

I do trust all the concepts you have presented in your post.
They are very convincing and can definitely work.

Nonetheless, the posts are very brief for newbies.
Could you please lengthen them a bit from next time?
Thanks for the post.

I'm not sure exactly why but this site is loading incredibly slow for me.
Is anyone else having this problem or is
it a problem on my end? I'll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.
