JERRY'S KIDS, SCHOOL OF VIOLENCE, KILLSLUG, NECROPOLIS
January 25 1987 Sat CBGB NYC
Steg of School of Violence was kind enough to get us a gig at CBGB on the same bill with the recently reformed Jerry's Kids. Jon's folks weren't too keen on him going to NYC with us on the occasion of his 17th birthday, so Jeff Cherep of Doomwatch stepped up to the plate and bailed us out (the first of sevral occasions).
As it happened, the gig turned out to be on Superbowl Sunday, and just our luck, the Giants were in the game. They delayed the start of the "matinee" for over an hour. We ended up playing to about 50 people, but by the time Jerry's Kids hit the stage, the club was packed with the whole NYC hardcore scene. George brought Danny "Arghman" along for muscle...

FEBRUARY 14 1987 at CITY LIMITS
