May 13, 1971 (Thursday)
gym, St. Mary's College
St. Mary's City, Maryland, U.S.A.

I took the bus down to the college that afternoon. I was in High School then and was down for a weekend visiting my friend (I knew I would be attending St. Mary's in the Fall). It was a great concert and turned me and my buddies into lifelong Badfinger devotees.

We do know it was with a local band called "Crank". It was an incredible show....better than the show at Painters Mills in 1972. It was in the gym, no seats, just mats, so we could get as close as we wanted. Pete Ham was playing the red SG guitar and I remember being very impressed with Joey Molland and Pete Ham traded lead guitar licks.
