ANECDOTES:

Videola memories: Stephen Beck, Katie McGuire, Bill Roarty and Don Hallock locked in SFMOMA (Stephen remembers):

Ah, those photos of us setting up the concert at the old SFMOMA brings to mind that we got locked into the museum one night when we were there late setting up - we had to step out onto the balcony way up high on that classic building on Van Ness across from City Hall - gazing at that golden dome of City Hall ... and eventually one of the guards came around and found us around 2 AM to let us out.....

Those concerts were amazing at SFMOMA I remember packed houses in the large auditorium, and the other gallery where we were set up previous to the big concerts - the trustees came in for one of those preview concerts and I recall a number of fur clad, silver haired dowagers looking at you and me in our hippie hair with suspicion but once we started the performance they were amazed - I remember one saying to me afterwards "You hippie artists really showed us something beautiful. Thank you!" so I replied "And thank you, Madam, for coming to see our works." Thus in 1972 a small bridge between the "hippie artists" and the social registry was built, at least that night.

The other concerts we gave with the Videola on the 7th and Folsom location where NCET had to move after being kicked out of the Bryant Street Studio, I recall huge mobs of people lining up out there to get up into the loft space on the second floor so see more performances .....those were very fun times, and thanks for your masterful essay to bring back some of the memories of another era.  I have one video shot of that gas station across the street with a sign in 1972 of gas for 39 cents a gallon.

Cheers, Steve
