09/09/01 Ice T/The Beatnuts @ Shea Stadium parking lot, Queens, NY
I used to go to a lot of car shows featuring the kind of tricked out vehicles featured in The Fast and The Furious. This particular event was notable for the inclusion of live hip hop.
The Beatnuts are one of the all-time great underrated NYC hip hop groups and I was pretty excited to see them live. They did not disappoint.
We also met skateboarder Rob Dyrdek (pre-MTV reality show fame), who was apparently part of Ice-T's entourage for the weekend. He signed my friend's Canon GL-1.
Google research has basically confirmed the date, which seems like lightyears before two days later in my memory banks.
