genova’s chestnut inn

from the louvin brothers, ira louvin posted in music by pete_nice

After the legendary gospel/country act The Louvin Brothers split up in 1963, Ira Louvin headed back to his native Arkansas to work on his solo album.

Two years later, he was playing a series of shows at Genova's Chestnut Inn in Kansas City, MO with his fourth wife and recording partner, Anne Young. Ira had called his mother right around that time to say that the road was bringing out his old drinking demons, and that he was ready to stop touring.

On the way back to Arkansas on June 20, 1965, Ira and his wife (as well as 3 others) were killed near Williamsburg, Missouri on Highway 70 when a drunk driver veered into their lane and hit their vehicle head-on.

Genova's Chestnut Inn appears to still be functioning, although at least partly as the Shady Lady Lounge, an adult entertainment venue.

London's Royal Albert Hall opened in 1871 named after Queen Victoria's late husband Prince Albert.

Over 50 live albums have been recorded here including The Byrds’ Live at Royal Albert Hall 1971 (recorded in 1971 and released in 2008), Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds’ Live at The Royal Albert Hall (recorded in 1997 and released in 2008), The Who’s Live at The Royal Albert Hall (recorded in 2000/2002 and released in 2003), and Adele’s Live At The Royal Albert Hall (recorded and released in 2011).

Don’t be fooled by Bob Dylan’s Live 1966: The “Royal Albert Hall” Concert. It was actually recorded at Manchester Free Trade Hall. Likewise, Creedence Clearwater Revival’s The Royal Albert Hall Concert released in 1980 was found later to have been recorded in 1970 at the Oakland Coliseum, and it was renamed The Concert when it was reissued.

academy of holy angels

From Trouble Boys:

The Academy of the Holy Angels in Richfield, a first-tier suburb just south of South Minneapolis, had been all-girls school for most of its first century.

Founded in 1877 as an institution of learning for fledging nuns, it became a private day school in 1931. It began admitting boys in 1972. Paul Westerberg was a member of the second class that included males.

"I was a little hesitant to go 'cause it had been all-girls," he said. "But that also meant there was gonna be a lot of chicks there."

From Trouble Boys:

"Paul's first years were spent at 3734 Pleasant Ave, kitty-corner from the Church of the Incarnation, where Hal and Mary Lou had been married.

The house was within eyesight of the Catholic school Paul attended until he was a teenager."
