The first show was at my High School with "The Third Power" headlining and "Harpo Jets" opening.
I was deeply impressed.
"The Third Power" were also a power trio but they had a record out and had a big local reputation. At the time it wasn't unusual for bands with a record deal to play local High Schools. Bands like "The Stooges" "The Frost" and "MC5" regularly played High School gigs.
As the band took the stage they hugged some some senior girls they clearly knew. They roared in to action and as I stood near the stage I remember thinking two things: I want senior girls to hug me and I want to be a part of this world.
