The second rock concert I went to as a kid was an epic, gloriously 90s triple bill of Screaming Trees, Soul Asylum, and the Spin Doctors. I think If I’ve done my detective work correctly, this was literally Soul Asylum’s set from that night. My dad held my eyes open for this.
Just the best guys.
This is a rare video I found from the first real rock concert I ever went to. Metallica, touring for the black album, at the Allentown Fair. I was pretty young, so I went with my dad, and he made me cover my then-virtuous eyes during this part.
In retrospect, he was right. I couldn’t have handled this.
