The Historic Fremont (Movie) Theater Was Built In 1942

OldNeumanntapr Notes:
I'd wanted to see Richard Thompson for a long time, but until recently it has never been convenient. I've loved his music since first hearing '1952 Vincent Black Lightning'. I think he is a very gifted song writer and guitarist, and paints wonderful stories with his music. I love seeing shows at the Fremont because it is such a cool old building with so much history, and has really good acoustics because of its curved interior walls. The Art-Deco style theater also has a really ornate inlayed ceiling. Formally a movie theater that was built during WWII, the new concert promoters are morphing the historic Fremont into a performing arts theater which, to me, draws parallels to the fabled Fillmore East in New York. However, the Fremont, which seats just under 1,000, doesn't have a balcony. I have seen many films at the Fremont starting in 1977, and first recorded there in 1992 when I was front row on the left side for Los Lobos, before they allowed open recording. Thanks to Mike as always for his awesome post production skills, and thanks to my friends who supplied me with some band / theater photos from the night. I hope everyone enjoys this, and appreciates the efforts required to reap the benefits of the superior Neumann sound in the midst of the dark ages of gun violence that this country is currently saddled with that necessitates the added security presence of metal detectors. Here's to the continued pursuit of the archival of live music throughout these dark times.
