Flashback: The Evening Whirl in Spin Magazine

comment
One of my coolest recent finds on Google books is a searchable archive of Spin magazine's entire collection -- from the magazine's very first issue (Madonna was the cover star, May 1985) through last fall's Pearl Jam interview. I happened to click randomly on the May 1986 issue (R.E.M. on the cover, natch) and stumbled upon a write-up on the Lou's own Evening Whirl. Even 22 years ago, things were pretty much the same for the East St. Louis paper. Scroll below to the article with the headline "Man Caught Making Love to Dog" to read what the magazine had to say about the Whirl.
