  1. An additional date - I saw the QMS #17 lineup play in David Lawrence Hall on the University of Pittsburgh (PA) campus on February 22, 1976. Barefoot Jerry was the opening act. I do have some pictures, although they aren't particularly noteworthy.

  3. Regarding the show "February 3, 1974: Paramount, Indianapolis, IN with Country Joe And The Fish, Aerosmith" - that show was at the Indianapolis Convention Center, not the Paramount. I attended that show at the Convention Center and remember it well (even though my mind was a bit, ahem, clouded) - I still have the ticket stub. The Paramount is a theater in Anderson, Indiana and I have never seen a show there. QMS may well have played at the Paramount, but it was not on Feb. 3, 1974.
