366 Days at the Drive-In: Day 67

The Date: December 6
The Movie: Gimme Shelter (1970)
What Is It?: Calling this genuinely disturbing and rather frightening document of an outdoor Rock festival gone horribly wrong the anti-Woodstock is an understatement. Even though music isn’t really the point of Gimme Shelter, there’s still a lot of great Rolling Stones music—not that that’s any consolation.
Why Today?: On this day in 1969, the Altamont Free Concert took place on California’s Altamont Speedway.
