While I’m reminiscing..
I was at this show. The Calderone in Hempstead is now the Faith Baptist Church (about a one minute walk from my office), which is interesting given that the Mini Cinema is now a church as well.
Bands I saw there include Peter Tosh, Todd Rundgren, Elvis Costello, The Ramones, Patti Smith, The Runaways, Hot Tuna and a bunch of other hippie bands.
My favorite thing I found during my
research headlong dive into nostalgia:
However, the Calderone did very well during the 1950 up until about 1967 when a riot in the theater happened during the showing of the Planet of the Apes. Much damage was done to the lobby and the front glass.
