Notes:
ONE show, double bill, held in the VCU Gym, with CHILD headlining and Richmond band RAIN'CHILDREN opening. From a fan recall (thanks Daniel) : "The frontman [of R.C] whose name I do not recall was a real talent. The rumor in Richmond in those days was that the band broke up following his bust for drug possession.". Following this show the band returned to New Jersey only to learn that another progressive rock band from Long Island, NY was not only using the name “Child”- they’d also just released an album under that name on the Roulette Records label. Consequently this Nov 1st gig is believed to have been the last gig performed prior to the band’s decision to change its name from Child to “Steel Mill” (a name suggested by a friend of Vini Lopez). For the remainder of November and December the group’s promotional material tended to incorporate both names in order to minimize confusion.

Notes:
ONE show, held outside the Student Union Building starting at 11AM, with CHILD-STEEL MILL performing a brief set. There were several folk singers that also performed short sets. This morning event was the start of Monmouth College’s day long Vietnam Peace Offensive – a prelude to the 2nd major National Moratorium demonstration held in Washington, DC the following day. At midnight rented buses were waiting to transport people down to Washington. It is believed that some (or all) members of Child-Steel Mill traveled in the buses to Washington.

Notes:
Brucebase: One show, triple billing, held in the school's 3,500-seat Crenshaw Gymnasium. CHILD-STEEL MILL (who were paid $650) have second billing to headliner, CHICAGO TRANSIT AUTHORITY (who were paid $3,000). Richmond band NATURAL WILDLIFE opens the show. This concert had an unusual "alternating sets" structure. CHICAGO performed two 45-minute sets and CHILD-STEEL MILL played about 45 minutes AFTER each of CHICAGO's sets. Very strange indeed. The concert was not a sellout. Note: press surrounding this show used the name "Child", not "Steel Mill", although posters may have been adjusted to accommodate the new band name.

Notes:
One show, triple billing, held in the school's 3,500- seat Crenshaw Gymnasium. This concert (the second in two nights) was part of a major sporting and cultural activities weekend at Randolph-Macon. CHILD-STEEL MILL (who were paid $650) have second billing to headliner IRON BUTTERFLY (who were paid a whopping $7,500 - that's substantial for this time period). Richmond band NATURAL WILDLIFE opens the show. Unlike the previous night this concert had a traditional performing structure. CHILD-STEEL MILL played about 60 - 70 minutes. The concert was not a sellout and lost money. Note: press surrounding this show used the name "Child", not "Steel Mill", although posters and handbills may have been adjusted to accommodate the name change. (Brucebase)
