    I was at Toads 8/12/1989. 7 months pregnant. I was allowed to come in early bcz they had pity on me. I lined the bar with shot glasses to hold seats for the 6 of us. My friend worked for Koplik and Finkel and I was one of the priviledged ones. The show was actually suppose to be 2 weeks prior but was changed. I have a dozen pictures from that date. Most awesome time. There was a period of time where the doors were open, there were 500 peeps inside and no one else came in! All that knew where there already. They covered the telephones with black sheets so no one could call out and ruin the secret. Once the band came on, no addtional people were allowed in. There was a media frenzy outside! I gave the inside scoop to my boss at the time who is a huge Stones fan, he didn't believe me...didn't show. Will always regret not listening to me. Several years later at the "Steal Wheels" concert, I wore a sweatshirt that said "August 12 1989 I was at Toad's Place, where where you?" Well I had so many people come to me and tell me the exact place they were at when then heard the news. A memory I will never forget.
