Trivia: the guy who warned the crowd against ingesting the "brown acid" was the lighting engineer Chip Monck. The light system he built was designed for one of the other proposed sites but could not be erected at the actual final site. That's why all the after-dusk acts were lit only by 4 spotlights.

Monck was appointed MC for the festival after organizers realized they forgot to hire an MC.

Monck lost teeth after being hit by a pool cue-wielding Hells Angel at Altamont a few months later

I was actually pretty liberal but that changed when my paychecks were hammered by taxes and when I bought a house and had kids. Those things straighten most people out. Not hippies
