The Dark Side To a Naive Kid's Love of Music

I am a 80s kid, who came to her first all ages show to see New Man at the Channel. It wasn't the most scenic or secure walk from South Station, but we suburban high school gals had few options with public transportation. We did know to leave the location out when telling our parents that we were going out! Later, going to university in Boston and living in the North End, this was a regular spot. I am listening to this Podcast series and saying Holy F*ck!!!! Naiveté at its best! Had no clue how dark.
