Sep 29, 2011 No Comments by

by Karen Kritzer The Clash.  $5.00 bucks to see the Clash.  $5.00 bucks to be a part of history.  There is no price you can put on this show.  You simply had to be here.  Imagine this:  There was an early 6:00 pm show of an Israeli folk singer that night.  No one remembers that, […]
