When the Neville Brothers appear at Humphrey's on June 24, in the tuning room, they want a bottle of V-8 juice, a bag each of "individually packed cookies" and "individually wrapped candy" as well as a "large bag or box of any sort of healthy snack (surprise us!)." They want their bus stocked with canned chicken and tuna and no fewer than 16 "extra large" cans of Campbell's chunky soup ("vegetable beef, chicken noodle, vegetable, beef sirloin, bean").
Before the Wallflowers play Humphrey's on June 25, front man Jakob Dylan insists that promoters "make absolutely no reference to 'Bob Dylan's son' in any and all advertising and billing, including print and radio." They'll make a deal with local radio stations to provide a hundred giveaway tickets "in exchange for $1000 radio time invoiced." Their backstage dinner should include two hot entrées ("no casseroles or fried foods"), three steamed fresh vegetables ("broccoli, asparagus, corn [or] peas"), baked potatoes or steamed rice and desserts ("homemade and gourmet").
