Jimi writes in his diary, “Today we play Rochester, NY. Really a strange town … oh well … two girls came up to my room by the names of Heidi and Barbra [sic]. Real groovy people. We played one show tonight. Very bad P.A. Bad hall, patient people, but I kind of lost my temper with everything in general. Recorded show with tape recorder. After show we go to girls house with party material. Someone outside got beat up the (illegible). Stayed there over night in the (illegible) room. OK.”
