Chips and Beer for the Midnight Toker

When the Steve Miller Band appears at Pala Casino's Palomar Starlight Theater on Friday, October 5, their hospitality room requires tortilla chips ("one bag unsalted, two bags salted"), a pint of guacamole ("no supermarket prepackaged"), a "bunch" of cilantro ("fresh"), a dozen cloves of garlic, and a gallon of vegetarian soup ("homemade"). Drinks: a half case of Corona beer, a half case of Coors Light, a half case of Heineken, a half case of "local microbrewery," a six-pack of nonalcoholic beer ("Haake Beck or Clausthaler"), and a quart of acidophilus milk. Miller demands that no Styrofoam products be used, and he wants the crew to "act in an environmentally sound fashion."

When the Black Crowes appear at 4th&B on Tuesday, October 9, "dressing room must be equipped with real furniture...individual wooden chairs or stools is unacceptable." Expected munchies include a whole chicken ("roasted"), a loaf of rye bread ("pre-sliced"), a jar of Guilder's mustard, a large bag of M&Ms ("plain"), a box of crackers ("Carrs, Ritz, etc."), and a deli tray with turkey, ham, salami, and bologna ("not processed"). Drinks: two six-packs of Coca-Cola ("classic"), a dozen bottles of Gatorade ("green"), 24 bottles of Sapporo beer, 24 bottles of Heineken, and two bottles of Ketel One Vodka ("750ML"). The band bus requires a case each of Heineken and Sapporo ("no cans"), a case of bottled water ("no gas"), and a six-pack of nonalcoholic beer. (From thesmokinggun.com.)
