And it was $11.50.
Tonight you can see an LCD Soundsystem *cover band* at Verdi Club for $15.
Bay Guardian in 1977, baby!
Holy cow! That Winterland show!!
Lol, the Dictators & the Ramones as “new wave music”.
“Tickets available at BASS.” Oh yea.
Back when venues did not have corporate naming rights assigned to them.
Man, I would kill to see that show at the Winterland.
Because you have a crush on Handsome Dick Manitoba.
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?
Not as many big shows in SF these days. Bill Graham worked a lot harder than these disinterested corporations that replaced him.
I was there : Led Zep 1977 Day On The Green
Well, when you adjust for inflation that’s $44.39. Still cheap by today’s standards, but not outrageously so.
