    Sarah Pedinotti was at One Caroline frequently back then.

  2. Fred says:

    Went to both those Tom Petty shows–awesome! (SPAC should book them for multiple shows like they have done for DMB). Roseanne Cash was incredible, and so gracious after the show talking about her father who was ailing. Who will ever forget the Gourds? They were off the hook.
