Last time AKUS played at Winterhawk, was a carnival of sorts, a booking company bought a lot of day tix, bussed about 200+ people in for just her set and then they all left while Tim O’Brien and the O’Boys w/ Jerry Douglas were warming up. At that point the festival realized that Alison was too big for the festival and she has not been back since
Damn. I never knew this.
This was in 1997 btw.
This is what ticket scalping looked like before the internet, I guess.
