Oh Geez, Was This Twenty Years Ago?

Lollapalooza 91

I caught the Lollapalooza’s first show in Accordion City in August 1991, a month before my triumphant return to Crazy Go Nuts University (I’d been kicked out of Engineering for academic reasons and negotiated my way back into Computer Science on the strength of my programming course marks). It was one of my favourite concerts of all time, and my first chance to see one of my favourite bands, Nine Inch Nails, live.

Someone posted this poster online with the headline “20 Years Ago”, which made me think “Damn, I’m old”.
