Pic of the Day: Iggy and the Stooges Perform at a High School, 1970


Dangerous Minds has posted a wonderful set of photos that place Iggy Pop — in his big-time drug days — in a high-school gymnasium with a couple hundred teenagers who clearly have no idea WTF they’re looking at. The images come from Iggy and the Stooges’ performance at Michigan’s Farmington High School on December 5, 1970 and made their way to The Rockets frontman Jim Edwards’ Facebook page via a co-worker who saw the show as a student. Each shot is a classic, but our favorite is the inexplicable picture above, of Iggy standing in front of a crowd of clearly unsettled young guys — with his fly wide open.
