Rockin’ Campus

Jerry Garcia performs in the Quad in 1969. (Jim Laverty)

In the song “School Days,” Chuck Berry proclaimed, “Long live rock ’n’ roll,” and at Washington University so it has.

Tune into the October issue, when the Washington Magazine will take readers on a trip down memory lane, looking back at ­concerts on campus and showcasing rare posters and ­never-before-seen performance images.

If you have any concert memories or photos to share, email, and the ­magazine will ­consider publishing, as space allows, in the next print issue.
