Were any of you there for these shows?


  1. In 1995 BFD, my first concert EVER! Memorable to say the least on the side stage you had Sublime! I distinctly remember the crowd yelling play Date Rape to Bradley. RIP Bradley. I remember this show not only as my first show but because I won tickets for being caller 10! Oh the memories!
