On This Day, Buffalo Springfield Debuted at the Troubadour

By Jessica Wheeler, AliveTampaBay Columnist

On April 11, 1966, Buffalo Springfield debuted at the Troubadour Club in Los Angeles. It was the band’s first live performance and launched the careers of band members Stephen Stills and Neil Young. The band would score their only top 10 hit the next year with “For What It’s Worth,” a song detailing the recent riots on L.A.’s Sunset Strip, the street that housed the clubs frequented by Buffalo Springfield and other California rock bands.
