We always love when vintage Cleveland concert footage hits the web. Last week, a nicely upgraded AC/DC show from 1979 slammed onto Youtube (it was originally posted a year ago).

Angus Young is in fine form here. 

Clevelanders of a certain age and rock 'n' orientation will remember that this night of concerts (July 28, 1979) was followed up by violence downtown. Pressure from city leaders, among other factors, led to the last World Series of Rock being held in 1980.

Though decidedly less vintage, see also:

Smashing Pumpkins in Tremont in 1991
Queens of the Stone Age at Euclid Tavern in 1999

And do look out for more bitchin' footage right here.
