AKRON HOTEL

Folder: 
U.S. BLUES

 

 

It was

a pretty cool hotel

in Akron

for the Dead show

 

they let us

do the room scam

without any hassles

 

so 10 people crammed

into a single room

 

it was great

except my friend

who walked through

a window

shattering glass

 

even though

he was
the only sober person

among us
