Before going into thew Air Force in 1973, I worked at this drive-in and remember fondly (?) walking down every row during the day listening to music from the speakers and tearing apart and fixing the speakers that didnt work. I also remember mowing the fron grass when it was over 3 feet high, the mower dyieing with every pucsh, LOL at night, we would sit in a car in the very back and catch people sneaking in from the fields and also catching people getting out of trucks trying to get in free.

The yet to be discovered Canadian rock trio RUSH, along with several other bands, played at the ill-fated noon to midnight Northside Concert on May 18th, 1974. The bands played on a stage constructed in front of the screen at the Northside Drive-In Theater. According to the Lansing State Journal newspaper article, attendance was sparse, but drug overdoses were aplenty. In typical State Journal fashion, the article did not mention any of the bands, or their music sets at the concert. Read the entire article below.

The original screen reportedly burned down due to a fireworks accident sometime in the 70s, and was quickly replaced. Two more screens were added in the 80s, making the Northside a triple. The theater was neglected towards the end and had become quite a party spot, causing local police to visit often. (Outdoor Moovies 9-99).
