Back to the Garden: reliving Woodstockby Penelope Starr on Aug. 13, 2009, under Arts, Life
I’m going down to Yasgur’s farm . . . I mean the Rialto Theatre on Saturday, August 15, to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Woodstock at the KXCI concert because I missed it the first time. I lived in Woodstock in the 60′s but I moved to Denver right before the festival (it wasn’t in Woodstock anyway) so I decided to have a belated experience, hopefully without the traffic jams.
The 3 day festival was billed as an Aquarian Exposition of peace and music but it was so much more. It defined a generation. It changed lives and it has generated a wealth of memories and stories.
