My First Real Live Show


You always remember the first live show where you really had a great time. This was around 1987-1988. My good friend Ben Armstrong took me to this show at the DMZ which was a very dirty punk rock dive but so cool. The Squids opened the show and they were a great young punk band out of Ft.Smith, AR. The Flaming Lips headlined and apparently went on to some success lol. The Flaming Lips were clad in crush velvet and opening the show their smoke/fog machine malfunctioned filling the club so you couldn't see anything. I barely remember the show but I remember the energy of the show. This kick started my interest in live music. Thanks Ben.
