366 Days at the Drive-In: Day 267

The Date: June 23

The Movie: Paul McCartney and Wings: Rockshow (1980)

What Is It?: Concert film of Wings’ 1976 tour catches the band at a point when they were sharp as nails, putting on a mammoth, crowd-pleasing show. Most important of all, Paul had finally decided to work some Beatles material into the performance, which included lots of songs the fabs never got a chance to play. Despite several dollops of classic Wings corniness (“Awlriiiiight!”), this is a solid rock show.

Why Today?: This day in 1976 is the final day footage for this film was shot. Awlriiiiight!
