The One Knite was an oasis of soul.*
The club is L-shaped. At the far end is a tiny stage and a dozen rickety tables. The bathrooms, those gloriously iniquitous dens, are tiny affairs with entrances close enough to the stage for the parade of female pulchritude to entertain the entertainers.
Hot pants, blue-jean cutoffs, hip-huggers, tube tops, halter tops, wooden platform shoes, sun-kissed hair, legs and backs tanned from a day of sunbathing naked at Hippie Hollow, the women glide out from the pink, graffiti-covered stalls, and sidle down along the bar, denim-encased derrières disappearing into the crowd.
Welcome, my friends, to the One Knite. It's 1974.**

We donated all profits to MusiCares, a program from the Music Academy (Grammy Awards) that assists needy musicians.
We also cooked up a Second Somewhat Annual Reunion and had a blast listening to the One Knite All-Stars. You can see the poster here!
