    I remember the 2009 Grace Potter Alive at 5 show because it was the day Michael Jackson died. I had seen Grace before at Revolution Hall in Troy and at Mountain Jam. I spotted Grace’s dad and gave him a CD of pictures I had taken at the fest. This year she was back at Hunter Mountain in between gigs opening for The Rolling Stones and, as she said at the fest, “singing with Mick Jagger.” I also remember the 1985 Clapton show, which cost less than $10 for a good seat in section 8. Those were the days…
