Fuck me if I haven’t been trying to figure this date out for a long long time. Got some good intel from one of the principal participants and we may be able to nail this down once and for all. Looks like the guy who put me onto this date all those years ago was right and it was a Psi-Com show after all.
Perry posted this photo from a video chat he had with Aaron Sherer and Aaron shared it. When he did I took the opportunity to ask some questions.
Michael Walters: Fingers crossed that this “project“ has something to do with some previously unreleased Psi-Com music.
Tom N. Smith: Driving you guys to the Golden Bear in Huntington for the gig with Fishbone is literally a major highlight of my life!
Michael Walters: Tom N. Smith Was this possibly an Illuminotic gig? https://janesaddiction.org/tour/show/il ... 9-27/1565/
Aaron Sherer: Michael Walters No, it wasn’t. Actually, I think it was the last show ever for the old, original Golden Bear. Perry and I did just a few gigs as the Illuminatics. Pretty sure that they were at the Anti Club.
Michael Walters: Aaron Sherer thanks! I’ve been trying to figure this out for years. I just need to figure out when that last show was then?
Tom N. Smith: I am afraid I can't help narrow down the dates for you after all these years either Michael Walters... you are in the right year. I was between enlistments in the Air Force and there was around a six month break where I was with Aaron Sherer and family in LA (he is my brother in law).
Tom N. Smith: according to Fishbone's wiki they played the Golden Bear September 27th 1985, that has to be the Psi Com gig too.
Robin Sherer-Smith: Summer 1985, Tom. I think it was in mid July because we'd been in LA a few weeks.
