What do you hear about the Fillmore? The purple chandeliers.
Saturday, May 22, the Chris Isaak concert sparkled like the purple chandeliers. Isaak and his opening act certainly seemed to like the purple chandeliers. When I entered the auditorium, I liked them as well. They glimmered over an expansive area for the audience, a large, seatless space. After three hours of standing, the purple chandeliers failed to carry my spirits to their lofty heights. Instead, my calf muscles screamed "surrender." As a respite from the sweltering conditions, I eased my way over to one of the several bars to rehydrate. Water? That'll be $2.50. As I worked my way back to my wife, I gazed toward the purple chandeliers and, glancing at my bottled water, realized who was paying for them.

What can I say about the Fillmore? Nice purple chandeliers. As a concert venue, it makes a great roller-skating rink.
