Held in a funky and rather dilapidated rowhouse on Avenue D on the Lower East Side -- in the pre-gentrification days when Alphabet City was still a very scary place -- Little Milton's Birthday Bash was one of the greatest Tull parties ever thrown.
Jerry Adessa hosted, but Dennis, Bev, Lee, Benjamin and others made major contributions. The music was non-stop, and featured The Second Coming of Jethro Toe, Heresy, Benjamin with an acoustic set, and others. Jerry had many kegs of beer and like a 30 foot deli hero, if I recall correctly. Twenty years later, I've still got the shirt, and it's held up pretty nicely.
I went with this cute Chinese girl I was seeing, and Mike took his future wife. Back then, you could smoke weed right on the front stoop of the place, with cop cars passing by, and you'd have nothing to worry about. I'm not saying that we actually did that, only that we could have if we were so inclined.
Here's the programme:
