The Garage (Performance Center)
Cambridge, Massachusetts, U.S.A.
The b/w photos are from the
gig that Badfinger did at a place called the Performance Center in The
Garage in Harvard Square in Cambridge, Massachusetts. They opened for
Alex Chilton and Big Star and we went to both gigs and we sat in the
front row. Things were pretty low by then I guess. Joey had gotten very
intoxicated. The second show was cut short due to Joey's condition. I
remember there were two or three Asian people standing in front of the
stage, right in front of him, and he was mocking them with some kind of
stereotypical Asian dialect. It just went on and on and the audience
finally started looking at them, as if to say, "Do you realize what he's
doing?" I remember, toward the end of the show, Pete sort of led him off
the stage. They were great all the same.
