Last night we performed at the Rialto in Tucson. My tour calendar shows that we performed here seventeen years ago, in 2005. I am not sure whether that was the first time we played this venue, but it’s the first time recorded
on this website – hold on, I found a 2005 post that references a concert at the Rialto in 2001. Here is a link to a 2007 post, with a Matt Callahan photo… as you can read there, Tucson seems to always bring out the best in us.
I do remember what a funky (derelict is too strong a word) area the theater was in, twenty one years ago. Walking around this morning I thought that the city has really done a very nice job bringing life back into this port of downtown. I can’t speak for the rest of the city because I really only know a walking distance around the Rialto.
Oh, and the performance was so much fun. Once again Tucson brought out the best in us.
