Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center: Old Saybrook, CT

I’m sorry the photo doesn’t show the texture of the stall door. It is rather like a smaller version of those raised circles you see on funky linoleum floors. I was at The Kate, as we call this gem of an arts center, for a performance by J Geils with Jeff Pitchell & Texas Flood. Should have been billed the other way around as Giles only played 3 songs. (Also strange that all the guys in Texas Food are from CT.) It looked like a Saturday Night Live skit with Giles dressed like he just came off his yacht, minus the ascot, and Pitchell like he just left his barcalounger. But the music was some of the best blues and rock and roll I have heard since the 60’s.
