Todd Rundgren Xavier Field House 1973

no image available

I went to this show with some chick from an art class, Vegasant's little brother & somebody else. We made the Frogtown - Porkopolis run on back roads. The art class chick drove her mom's lime green Buick or something like that.
The Xavier fieldhouse was like a slightly bigger, slightly nicer version of the Wittenberg Field House.
Sounded about the same.
Rundgren did 2 sets. First set was solo with recorded accompaniment, second with a band. I think it was Utopia. He was still playing a sensible SG. Vegasant's little brother was really getting into photography & you could still take cameras into concerts back then (Rundgren still allows cameras) and he damn near got in Rundgren's lap taking pictures during the solo set. I have nary a print, of course..... The second set was synthesizers & screaming guitar & trippy rock goodness.
I was sold.
