Info & Setlist | Venue

One show, with Bruce and his new band headlining the '2nd Annual Halloween Concert' at the Armory (see October 31, 1971 for the first show). This was a triple bill that also featured Odin and Tumbleweed. The show was organized and promoted by Bruce's former manager, Tinker West, who also handled the sound systems of all three bands for this show. Bruce is introduced as a 'Columbia Recording Artist'. The performance structure at this show would mirror the one utilized consistently for the next year (Bruce performed a short solo set and then brought on the band for the rest of the evening). Bruce and the band's performance lasted about 70 minutes and encompassed about eight or nine songs. One attendee has a memory of both "Santa Ana" and "Zero And Blind Terry" being played, although that seems unlikely (especially "Zero") given other information about Bruce's creation process for these two compositions. Setlists from this time are rare, but the set includes the earliest known performance of "Thundercrack".
