Painted ladies

As I stood outside painting this (at the intersection of Haight and Central) lots of locals stopped and pointed out to me the historical significance of these Victorians: first I heard Jimi Hendrix’s Electric Church met in one of these buildings, where apparently they took drugs, but Jimi himself didn’t live there.  Later, someone else told me that Jimi actually lived in one of these.  And later still, someone else told me that Jimi lived in one building and Janis Joplin lived next door.  According to Joel Selvin’s “San Francisco The Musical History Tour” the first account is true, The Electric Church being some sort of museum.
