I saw the Clash for the first time at the Palladium 35 years ago this day. I don’t keep track of such things, but others do.
This post at Dangerous Minds links to some film that was shot that night, synched to bootleg audio of the show. The effect is pretty cool, but like every live tape I listen to of a show I attended, it isn’t the same thing. The filters are all different.
But let’s say you’re not 35 years old and had no chance to be at this great show (and why doesn’t anyone mention Sam and Dave and the Undertones, who were also great?) this is what you’ve got.
I was there! One of my favorite shows and definitely the openers were great too. Was it called the Palladium then or still the Academy of Music? I think Palladium but I’m not sure.
