Bands of the 1st Woodstock

A little known fact - in 1868, 32 people packed a farmer's field in upper New York for what was billed as "Three Jolly-Good Days of Affection and Banjo Music".

However, by nightfall of the first day, all 32 of the audients had left. Undaunted, the musicians got drunk and played on for three days, man. Three days. It was far out.
