I used to live across the street from Metal Matt when he was in third grade. Funny to see these kids all grown up!!

Now this is what we need more of on Claycord! Enough with stabbings and shootings. More fun historical videos and sweet soundtracks!

hmmm pavilion yeah wrecked that venue when the powers that be decided it would be better to build housing right on top of it. Now all it is good for it a lawn and garden venue or quiet venues that stop well before 11pm…and they wonder why it makes no money or draws any big names lol…….
spirit poles …………yeah nobody in jail for that waste of money and time and lack of thought or at least the ones who were on board quickly jumped ship and found really good hiding places. Their answer to increasing art and feel for this city is more multicolored section 8 housing that brings in no money to support the city ……..ironic ….well if your job depended on securing votes instead of actually doing your job what would you do …..obviously using city money to secure more votes is what they do. Suffer well concord you have indeed earned it

@ Random Task (5)

How would you know? When’s the last time you left the house? Your constant negativity is very draining. Get some help!

Concord Pav. is a great place to see a concert! ROCK ON!!!

Ah Random Task, one of the bitter dozen.

The music makes me want to punch things, but pretty cool video. We live in a good place.

I definitely do not miss the spirit poles…lame idea and ugly!
I do miss the grass seating at the Pavillion. I saw Huey Lewis and the News while sitting on a tarp in the pouring rain. He made a shout out to us, best concert ever!

I saw Faith No More open for Metallica. I think it was ’89.

@Random task…our Claycordian.

Silva January 29, 2014 at 7:42 PM

I actually haven’t been back since before this project.

I lived a couple of blocks from the spirit poles when they were up….when I see them, it makes me throw up a little in my mouth.
