  1. I've been compiling and maintaining a David Lindley gigography, including the Kaleidoscope years, for quite a while.
    http://motherhipslive.com/tapersalmanac/lindleygigs.html
    I've made many additions in the last year and a half, but I don't have access to update it's current site. A friend and I are developing a database to contain the data that will be online soon. You have a couple east coast shows listed that I didn't know about. Thanks!

  2. Thanks to you Chico! I obviously know your David Lindley gigography and you've done a good work!!. If you want to have more info about The Mad Mountain Ramblers and The Dry City Scat Band take a look at my "Chris Darrow Early Years Story" here in this blog.

  3. The entry listed as "November 1967: Fun City, New York City, NY" (there was never a place with that name)should be "The Electric Circus." It was on St. Mark's Place between 2nd and 3rd Avenues in NYC. I was at the show and introduced me to there music. Fun City was the nick-name for NYC as today it is the Big Apple.
