It could have been BonnarooPosted Tuesday, June 10, 2008, at 11:30 PM
Does anyone remember two summers in the mid-1980s when rock concerts were held at the Torrejon farm on Bottle Hollow Road near Flat Creek?
They were regionally advertised (at least on KDF - remember when it was a rock station?) and one year featured a well-known band which I don't recall.
The sheriff's office (Don Edwards was sheriff at that time) kept a close watch and shut them down relatively early on Saturday night the second year. I remember being called to the sheriff's office to make photos of mounds of cases of beer brought in from the show.
Narrow two-lane roads leading into the area, in addition to prevailing attitudes at the time, would probably have made growth into something like Bonnaroo impossible. But who knows...
