I was there!! Loved all these groups growing up in Seattle.

On Sunday May 14, 1972, a major reunion of first-generation Pacific Northwest rockers is showcased at Seattle’s grand Paramount Theatre (911 Pine Street). Billed as the Northwest Rock ‘n’ Roll Revival, the concert was cosponsored by KJR radio and Rainier Beer, and featured performances by musical luminaries of the region’s early rock scene including the Wailers, Frantics, Kingsmen, Viceroys, Sonics, the Dave Lewis Trio, and others. The event provided longtime fans a chance to once again revel in the “original Northwest Sound” of their youth, and for the music community as a whole to reflect on the passage of time and how much the local scene — and music itself — had changed in a decade.
