and1: The Mary Gauthier show is my fourth show at Mitchell Park Bowl, since the reset. There was some feedback that the term “bowl” is confusing or it is not pinned properly on social media and the internet. Not my problem. When you enter the park is is the obvious circle of cement — maybe you can roller skate there, on another day — with a flat space for a stage, and surrounded by grassy knolls. The City had concerts there on Tuesdays in the summer for many years. Joan Baez — who shares the same agent as Mary Gauthier — did a show there once with a KZSU dj named Leonard Iniquez (sp) and they had Joan on the stage but facing west towards the soccer fields rather than east into the bowl. She drew about 1,000 whereas the bowl looks like, seated, in chairs – bring your own — or the grass — about 300.
