Do you remember when Erie had a rich rock legacy? Do you remember watching concerts at The Fieldhouse?

Author Dan Schell does. In fact, he wrote a book about his experiences there, and Sunday, July 29, he’ll take a trip back to The Erie County Fieldhouse to relive the memories and sign copies of his book, “9 Years of Rock: The story of concerts at the Erie County Fieldhouse,” for fellow rockers looking to stroll down memory lane.  

"The book has rekindled a lot of memories for people who grew up going to concerts there during the 1970s and early 1980s,” Schell said. “A lot of those folks wanted to see what the place looks like today, which is why I'm having the book signing there this Sunday."

Schell plans to be onsite from 1 to 3 p.m., and there will be a Fieldhouse Concert trivia game with Jeff Crock.

"Although it's now just a warehouse, a lot of people were saying they still would like to go inside the old Fieldhouse,” said Schell.

For those unfamiliar or for those who have forgotten, The Fieldhouse is located at Route 8 and I-90 behind the County Fair.

Here are three good opportunities to lighten up as the nights grow longer.

Shapeshift With Me, relative to the band’s spectacular catalog as a whole, is certainly one of their less powerful studio albums.
