Special Relations
Stanford University Press

This chapter discusses the large-venue rock concert. The rock concert was probably most productive in both reaching a mass audience and producing a sense of mass participation. In the United States and Britain, the mass outdoor concert was the site where the special (countercultural) relationship was most strikingly on display. British rock musicians have often appeared to have considered the home scene as insufficiently rewarding and thinly derivative of that in the United States. Furthermore, the Dialectics of Liberation—Towards a Demystification of Violence conference was the most ambitious radical event staged at the Roundhouse. The conference hardly dealt directly with issues of sexual oppression (of women and homosexuals). Some of the issues raised were of deep interest to both emerging radical feminism and Gay Liberation.
