Closing Time

My last show at The 49’r The 49’r closed its doors forever Tuesday, Oct. 26. I drove by yesterday. The neon signs were gone. The windows were black. The place was dead. As an elegy, let me tell you about the last time I saw a band at The 49’r. “Hold on a minute,” said the guy who took my $5 at the door. “Let me stamp your hand.
