O.N. Klub, February 3, 1983 (2)

2 Balls & A Bat was Cliff Martinez’s band – I don’t know whether he was in the Red Hot Chili Peppers at that point, but we were blown away by his having played with Captain Beefheart & The Magic Band.  I remember sitting outside of the On Klub with him, dejected that they wouldn’t let us into the club.  Cliff’s wisdom, drawn from years of experience?  “Dem’s the breaks, Kid.”
