Remember the Green Day show at Boston’s Hatch Shell back in 1994 that broke out into a riot? Were you there?!? Well, Julie Kramer certainly was, and on yesterday’s 25th anniversary of the incident, she recalled what it was like to be part of the action just as the chaos broke out.

She led off Kick Out The Jams with Green Day’s “Welcome To Paradise”, but not before sharing some details that have been lost to history.

Revisit Kramer’s recollections below via the Kick Out The Jams podcast, and tune in every weekday at noon for an hour of classic alternative and vintage indie.
