One night of peace & music

Seven years ago today, we make our first and to date only visit to Woodstock, for two Freewheeling Yo La Tengo shows.  Speaking of first and only, if I’m not mistaken, the other act on the bill, Bishops at Large–Jesper Eklow, Mike Fellows and Harry Druzd–were making their debut and farewell appearances that night.  Can’t recall all our patter, but none of our musical moments referenced the festival (unless I’ve been misinformed and Herman’s Hermits were part of Friday’s lineup).  Nevertheless there is no shortage of local color, with songs by Bob Dylan, Todd Rundgren and NRBQ dotting our sets.
