Tell us your Paper Bag #4 highlights
Highlights: Partners was our opening act, They concluded their set by tossing a Whopper with cheese (purchased across the street) onto the dance floor where it was stomped to death by deranged audience members. Beers in ceiling left from last year fell through the tiles and crashed down on band members. The mobile home was parked on NY Ave with Lani in the back room.... nobody can remember much of what happened here either. E-mail me if you have a clue

Paper Bag


the flyer

Here is the flyer from Paper Bag #4. Even though it is hand drawn it is a big improvement over last year. That is because this one was drawn by none other than K. Douglas Baldwin, a kick ass guitar player and unbelievable graphic artist (among many, many other talents.) Notice that this year admission is $1 with a paper bag, $2 without. This is also the first time that the event has the word "annual" in the title.

Good Times Ad



Go to the top of Bag #4




The Good Times ad for the Lion's Cage. Notice that the New Day Band - Jimmy Myers, Brian Moran, Neil Burgett, and Paul Chainsaw Cane - played on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and that Pirate (which I believe featured Chainsaw on guitar) played Thursday and Friday. I guess Cliff had trouble keeping bands.

Also I see my friends the Eccentrix - Mike Russo and Mark Cimino - of current Paper Bag fame were also finding work in Huntington.
