Info & Setlist | Venue

One show, double bill, with Steel Mill headlining and Sunny Jim opening. The listed partial setlist is culled from a review of the show by Joan Pikula in the Asbury Park Press on October 19, 1970, and Springsteen's own recollections in his autobiography Born To Run. Despite being on the lam after events at the Clearwater Swim Club on September 11, Danny Federici decides to take the chance and play at what is an important show for the band. Despite smoking himself into a mild state of paranoia in the car before the show, Danny made it through the gig and out unscathed. However, he was persuaded to turn himself in soon after. A sellout performance in the College’s Gym, with a crowd that Pikula estimates at near 4,000. This was the debut public performance of Sunny Jim, a group formed in May 1970 that included former Castiles drummer Vinnie Manniello and former Castiles and Earth organist Bob Alfano. "Changing Children" is also known by the titles "Change It" and "Change It (Revolution)".
