A Picture That Says It All

March 12, 2007

This photograph from the 1965 Portland Rose Festival was reprinted in today’s paper. It shows a local high school rock and roll band with the futuristic name EPIX jamming on the stage of the Memorial Coliseum while a row of Portland police officers wince and cover their ears.

I think this picture says it all. And I would give just about anything to know what their set sounded like.
