I saw the first Cinnamon Imperials show at Epicenter. They played with Wat Tyler and J Church. It was my first time at Epicenter, although I would go on to spend many hours there over the years once I became a volunteer. Through working at Epicenter I eventually met Trixie, who played guitar.
I used to have a shirt but I gave it away many years ago. I also used to have two Jawbreaker shirts that I later gave away. I used to be a lot more generous with my clothing, apparently.
I always liked this band. San Francisco pop! What's not to love?
I also saw the last Cinnamon Imperials show. It was at a party somewhere in The Mission, I think.
Trixie and I later started a band together, but that is a story for another day.
