Lockdown is now get out
Excitement and Novelty followed
  9:48am Antonio:

Hi Ira, we miss you down here in Uruguay. Come and play with the band once again!
  9:49am David in London:

TDK. That’s so great. Were they OK about underage folk getting in? I guess things were looser in those days and they didn’t have a stick up their arses about such things, and teams of heavies on every door etc. I’m taking my son to loads of gigs now and luckily he’s so tall now that he can pass for 18 easily and get in everywhere.

  9:52am David in London:

Earth Walker. That’s great! My wife and I do Qigong in the garden every evening (her brother is a teacher) and I find that it really helps me these days. I feel great after doing the Eight Brocades. Hope I can keep the discipline to make time when the world cranks up again. What got you interested?

@DavidinLondon: Freer days indeed. You know in NYC the club scene changed for the worse in the 1980s when drinking age was raised from 19 to 21 in 1985? And then the 1990s came along with the stupid cabaret laws and such.

My one hope for NYC in this Coronoavirus mess is the silver lining of perhaps those two things changing — or being eliminated — as local bars, restaurants and venues struggle with a dead economy.

Someone above mentioned 16 RPM LPs. I later discovered, aside from children's talk records, as they fit more songs, they were often used as party records. Trini Lopez did a 16 RPM partee album. Lo-fidelity I think.

  11:12am JakeGould:

@DavidinLondon: True! But the other factor is this: If the drinking age is 21, the only people you get sneaking into places like that will be 18 to 21. If the drinking age is 18 you get teenagers who are exposed to hip and cool stuff at a time in their life when they can soak it in and create as. By 21 you are on a career path.

Seems like wacky sociology until you think about it a bit; raising the drinking age like that effectively smothers a creative class.
