More on the event later.

Shoot, I wish our local drive-in was still around. Looks like the event you went to was a blast...or should I say scream? Thanks for sharing.

You're welcome, Patty! Thanks for posting--and I'll have Part 2 up in next few days.

"Twins of Evil"! Priceless! Great account of a great show (that I sadly wasn't able to attend). Thanks for making me feel like I was there!
