LowBallVideoChatter: U2, "New Year's Day" (from the 1983 US Festival)

OK, a bit too obvious, sure, but I know I'm not the only one who automatically thinks of this song every January 1. This clip is from the 1983 US Festival (I believe the day that was branded as "New Wave Day") near San Bernardino, on the site that years later would become the Blockbuster/Hyundai/San Manuel Pavilion, capturing U2 before the fatal infection of pretense set in . . .
