Q – I remember that during the early to mid-1990s you used to play one-off concerts (ie, not part of a tour) in Washington DC around the holiday season (Christmas and New Year’s). Was there any particular reason for this? My college roommates and I used to kick ourselves because we were usually out of town on winter break. We speculated that you had family in the area.

A – You were correct, and there was a local promoter I was friendly with. Cole xmas was paid for several times by the 9.30 club (old version). Thanks Seth.
