Hello Everybody.

Got back from the States this morning.
Had a great time - never been to States before.
Stayed 3 nights in San Francisco - walked The Golden Gate Bridge - went to Alcatraz etc.The usual tourist stuff.

Stayed 3 nights in Las Vegas - walked up and down the "Strip" a few times visiting all the main places.Rode the New York New York Roller Coaster - bloody hell !!!

Stayed 3 nights in Los Angeles - went to Universal Studios, Beverley Hills etc.

27/5 - Saw The Undertones at the Rickshaw Stop Hall in San Francisco - great gig/great crowd/great venue - band played well but had some sound problems, but nevertheless a great evening.

29/5 - The Undertones played at The Punk Rock Bowling Festival, and I have to own up, we missed this one.(How sad is that?) I wasn’t totally sure what time they were playing. Anyway we caught the bus from the hotel and it took forever to get to the venue, traffic was at a standstill most of the time.When we got there they had just finished !!!!

Anway later on that evening (or I should say the following morning) they were playing again just around the corner in The Beauty Bar, they came on at about 0145.
Venue was a bit different - you entered via the bar and had to walk through to the large open air area at the back of the premises.Once again a great crowd - band played well but had minor sound problems again - but once again a good night.
Got back to Hotel about 0400.

2/6 - Saw The Undertones at The Echoplex in Los Angeles.
Great venue - great crowd and the band were outstanding - no sound problems this time. A really really brilliant night.
Very definitely the best of what we saw.
