28th June

Teens 'n' Twenties present The Young Rascals, Country Joe and The Fish, The Sons of Champlin, The Sparrow and Grass Roots, with lights by Bob Holt Light Productions at the Oakland Auditorium, Oakland.

Correction:
The 6/28/67 "Teens 'N' Twenties" Young Rascals show at the Oakland Auditorium in your listing is incorrect. I was there. Sparrow did not perform; the Grateful did played instead. They did (not in order) "Beat It On Down The Line," "Cold Rain & Snow," "The Golden Road," "Good Morning Little Schoolgirl," and I think "Morning Dew." Maybe "Cream Puff War" or "Minglewood Blues" too. It was a fairly short set. They went on second, after the Sons of Champlin. The Sons had a member who walked with crutches--I believe their organist.

Then Country Joe, the Grass Roots and the Young Rascals, who closed with an extended jam. The Grass Roots were a little too slick and pop, whereas the Rascals were tight and put on a great show. But it was an interesting juxtaposition, because the less-commercial S.F. bands were obviously tapping into something new and exciting.

I believe the show's promoter was Bill Quarry, who was a car dealer who used to put on more conventional rock shows vs. Bill Graham's and Chet Helm's shows, which had already been going for a while at the Fillmore and Avalon.

I was already familiar with the Dead and Country Joe from their first albums, and in Country Joe's case their Rag Baby EP's before that.
