They Don't Make Cop Concerts Like They Used To In Beaumont

Categories: Texas
Via Bayou, the Beaumont Enterprise's lively blog, we got directed to an old posting on the Octane Radio Network.

And let's just say -- they don't make police concerts like they used to.


In 1957 -- when Rock and Roll was still the Devil's Music -- the Beaumont cops bring in Johnny Cash and Jerry Lee Lewis? No wonder the Golden Triangle was home to Janis Joplin

Were they just looking to fill their arrest quotas?

There's not much wrong at all with that line-up, though. Gene Vincent and Wanda Jackson too? Not bad for a dollar.
