A team, Eric and Betty Bloomerz, worth the price of admission tho the Rotunda show was generously open and free to the public which came in droves throughout the evening. The aspect that made it all worth while was the mix and diversity of ages, the relative sobriety of the student rovers, but most of all the number of ethnic Philadelphians of colour and their families including kids that stopped in... and stepped out. Real populist audiences for real underground literature and arts...
