I think Townes was friends with the people who ran this club called
"Knust" in Hamburg, he played there several times, there still is a
club by that name but it is another location the original Knust
was closed in the late nineties.

The stage was very small, and the dressing room was at the opposite
side of the room, so the musicians had to go through the audience
to get to the stage.
I remember the club was packed that night, someone was holding Townes'
guitar above his head to get Townes and his guitar through the
crowded place  to the stage.
