Did this move? An early description has it on Olive Avenue, but a later address is 1833 Hedges. Did it get relocated when Blackstone and Abby were split? Does anyone have any memories of this place? Who played there? I heard that the Byrds and the Dead played gigs there around '67.

I went to the Marigold a couple of times in the 60's and remember a band called The Chocolate Watchband and another was Sopwith Camel. They had a song called "Hello Hello, I like your smile, would you like some of my tangerine, you know I'd never treat you mean" or something like that,that got some limited air play on a small AM station that was located on Blackstone that would have to sign off when the sun went down. I can't remember their call letters but I won 2 copies of the Who's "I can see for miles" 45 trying to pick the right number to win a Yamaha trail bike. Also a few of the light shows there were put on by a guy named Don Yost. These are foggy memories at best, cause as they say, If you remember the 60's you weren't there.

My band opened for Janis Ian at the Marigold when it was at the Blackstone and Abby split. Never knew it was located anywhere else.

Check out this 1967 handbill for the Grateful Dead playing at the Marigold Ballroom. The event took place on May 12, 1967, were you there? Tickets could be purchased at Gospel Music (sounds familiar).
