Jan 29th Greenwood Civic Centre Greenwood,South Carolina SC:
Martian Boogie had just been released.They sounded great and wore "moon
boots" for the occasion.
As I recall, we picked up the gig due to a cancellation or other problem with
Holy Smoke and/or High Cotton. I don't remember  why. Neither of  those
bands performed the date. Only Brownsville Station and Pendulum.
I had a blast.(Thank you Steve (Pendulum) for the poster scan and the story.)
1978 from May to June  4 or 5 shows in Texas
(Venues unknown) Brownsville Station, Blackfoot (opened all shows)

I broke an average of 30 3-S
sticks a show.  Sometimes
unbroken, as well as broken were
given to the crowd. H
We bought my sticks by the gross from some small company, and had them shipped in boxes to me on the road.  I also broke at least one cymbal a week.  I
must have broken over a hundred crashes during Brownsville days.  I had to use heavy crashes, because thins would not make it through a show.  I also had
cast iron rims on my snare drum because I would bend the standard flanged rims down, flush with the shell every few shows.  I also worked with Ludwig to
develop the heavier duty Atlas stands, so they would hold up.  H
