Was this the night of the Poe Ditch Music Festival?

I don’t think so. Poe Ditch Festival was 6/1/75. Photo of the Gigolo fire just says 1975. I’ll try to look up exact date.

Wow! It was the same night- 6/1/75. Many “reasons” why I didn’t remember that...Ha! Makes it even more suspicious.

That fire was a big reason why the community never wanted to see another rock show at the football stadium, from what I understand.

Outsiders torched the press box at the Doyt in retaliation for stopping the show due to storms. Gigolo fire was later that night I guess. Real mess, but I sure did enjoy Pure Prairie League play “Amie”
