From The Vault: The Tubes (1982)   3 comments

Bay Area-based The Tubes started producing theatrical rock & roll long before it was in vogue. They were the band born to make videos for MTV … but they were born just a bit too early.

That left their stage shows as epic events, with acrobats, dancers and other performers joining in the fun on a regular basis.

Their biggest hit to date, “Talk To Ya Later” was a Top 10 hit in 1981, and it was on the strength of that hit that The Tubes played Magic Mountain on October 29, 1982. Still to come was their biggest hit, 1983’s “She’s A Beauty.”

From The Vault: Mel Tillis & Merle Haggard (1982)   2 comments

Magic Mountain didn’t just book teen acts … they also brought in Oldies stars like Chuck Berry and The Temptations as well as Country music legends like Loretta Lynn and Glen Campbell.

As you might imagine, I was generally too busy to take many pictures (I was running the theater 1979 – 1982, after all!), but I did have a few occasions to use my Nikon D90. On July 31, Mel Tillis was in concert, and on August 1, it was Merle Haggard.
