MC5 played a concert, believe it or not, in my high school gymnasium.
I was in high school from 1970 to 1973.
They shared the stage with Brownsville Station and one other
band, possibly Mutzie.
It was East Detroit High School. Does anyone else remember or have
any evidence for this event?
photolab stamp reads "Jan 71" and I had written "MC5
Dec 1970 EDHS" on each.
I was only 15 years old. Some notes on these pictures: They were taken
with my Dad's cheapo instamatic
(Kodachrome slides) and somehow I accidentally got a multiple exposure
which miraculously turned out pretty good.
The other picture of (is it Wayne Kramer?) raising his guitar over
his head faintly shows a scoreboard
in the background, proving that the band was playing in a gymnasium.
show at East Detroit High School was in 1970, about 37 years ago,
and I was only 15.
To tell you the truth, about all I remember is that the MC5 was LOUD,
sweaty, and very exciting.... KEN BUSH
