Concerted Record-lections

The main reason I got to go to this event was I was the only one in my group of friends who had a PA "senior" license which allowed me to drive past midnight! Three Rivers was a poor venue for music given its circular shape. I recall the sound bouncing off one end while hearing the next part of the song. Standing near second base. Being carried off by a group of strangers who dug my drawings. Walking all over trying to get a good ear to the music. Unruly crowds breaking over the railing and cramming the infield and nearly getting cut in half by the press of the people against a rail...a warning of what would happen in other venues to graver outcomes.
It was an open air market outside before the concert and I thought this might be the last time such a thing might happen since I could not believe the Authorities were not cracking heads. I cannot imagine that many high school age kids getting that free again. People began to wake up after this show. I remember getting home and my Dad ask me how was the concert. I said it was OK. Anything happen there he ask. No, nuthin. The next day he told me about the negative news coverage about the "riot" and kids storming the walls to get in. I thought he was making things up. Later friends say some of that may have happened. I still draw because of that show.
