  •  One of the first completely integrated concerts (2+ / 0-)

    in Houston, and perhaps The first, was when Brubeck played the old auditorium in the mid-50s. No one complained because if you were down with Jazz, integration was cool too. My older brother was in a high school jazz band and let little bro tag along. I think if my other wise somewhat progressive parents had known it was integrated (meaning Black people weren't restricted to the balcony), their fear of trouble from the rednecks and police (same thing) would have made us stay home.

    I'd tip you but they cut off my tip box. The TSA would put Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad on the no-fly list.
