1992 Lollapalooza Photo Pass
Behold, a 1992 Lollapalooza Festival Photograph Pass, used on Saturday, September 5, 1992 at the Fort Bend County Fairgrounds in Rosenberg, Texas (just outside of Houston, Texas). Note the date stamps indicating usage, just above the band name abbreviations. Among the acts that played that day on the main stage were Pearl Jam, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Soundgarden, Ministry, Ice Cube, the Jesus and Mary Chain, and Lush. Interestingly, just a day before, on Friday, September 4, 1992, Metallica and Guns N' Roses, with opening act Faith No More, played the Astrodome as a part of their stadium tour. What a weekend for concerts it was, fifteen years ago this month.
Thirty-something suffering from nostalgia but, thankfully, not from bouts of irony. Here, I will revisit artifacts of popular culture not sufficiently explored elsewhere, though I may perhaps stray from that mission at times.
