The Doors Live At The Matrix
San Francisco, March 1967

John & Robbie drove in John's VW van with the equipment,
Jim drove up w/his lover du jour, while Dorothy & Ray traveled
in her '63 VW Beetle.
They came up the 5 freeway, driving hard and fast.
They were headed north for the land of beatnicks...it was like
being Jack Kerouack ON THE ROAD with his cool Japanese
chick at his side, racing past Bakersfield and points beyond,
toward Fresno and points north. The legendary cities of California
Dreams-John Stainbeck country-on the road to San Francisco,
to bombard them with Doors music.
They pulled into the great city and headed for Broadway, where
they stayed at the Suisse Hotel, upstairs above Finocchio's famous
bawdy, raucous gay/drag/transvestite bar. Broadway was the site
of the club where Carol Doda performed too. She was the first
silicone-aided topless dancer...
The tourists loved that joint-them of course didn't bother, 'cause
they were headed to Marty Balin's joint, The Matrix.
They ate across the street at the Broadway Pool Hall consuming
GREAT submarine sandwiches, long SF sourdough heroes. They
were loaded with Molinari salami. Molinari's main outlet was just
around the corner on Colubus Avenue. Those subs were the best
they ever had, save for a little Italian sandwich stand outside of
Fort Monmouth (NJ), 'cause nobody can make a better sub than
they make in Jersey.
For Manzarek, Fujikawa and Morrison, the aspiring beats, it was living
the life they read about during their college days and they were THERE.
