Okay, now we're on a topic I can weigh in on.  Going to H.S. in Bklyn from 67-70 meant, for me, going to the Fillmore East at least weekly and to Central Park's outdoor concerts (Schaeffer sponsored) all summer (approx. 5x/week).  Add to that the fact that there were concerts at the NYS Pavillion in Flushing Meadows, Forest Hills Tennis Stadium and a couple of other venues (even MSG for Cream and the Bangladesh Benefit), and that there were usually 3 performers/concert.

The famous Concert for Bangladesh was in 1971, but most people don't know about the Bangladesh Famine of 1974 which was one of the worst famines of the 20th century, worldwide.

Bangladesh is the most densely populated country in the world that isn't an island or territory, i.e., with a population of over 10,000,000 (its population is over 160,000,000).
