Back when the most expensive concert ticket in town was Led Zeppelin

And it was $11.50.

Tonight you can see an LCD Soundsystem *cover band* at Verdi Club for $15.

    Back when venues did not have corporate naming rights assigned to them.

    Man, I would kill to see that show at the Winterland.

    I was at that Dictators/Ramones show — it was amaaaazing. Note that this was before Bill Graham banned The Nuns for doing a song named “Decadent Jew”.

    I was at the Zep show, it was a “Day On The Green’ show, Judas Priest also played and kicked major ass. I had more fun as a teenager than most people have had in tier whole lives.

    $15 for a cover band?

  9. Mark says:

    Not as many big shows in SF these days. Bill Graham worked a lot harder than these disinterested corporations that replaced him.

    Well, when you adjust for inflation that’s $44.39. Still cheap by today’s standards, but not outrageously so.
