Shot by: Amalie R. Rothschild

Audience at the Fillmore East, 09.23.70
Amalie says, “The very first seats to sell out for any show were the last three rows in the balcony. That’s where the kids were left alone to smoke dope. You could get stoned out of your mind there and the ushers wouldn’t hassle you. The older couple in this picture is the parents of the lead singer of Sha Na Na.” See more fantastic Fillmore-era shots from Amalie over at The Local East Village blog.

And check out this great article they posted recently about the long-gone venue by photographer Frank Mastropolo.
