Elks Lodge Riot Anniversary


Here's the poster for the gig where the famous/infamous Elks Lodge Riot happened - image courtesty of Flipside Fanzine online.

We talked about this few months ago but since the anniversary is upon us, I thought I'd share some photos of the bands that were scheduled to play.

Only the Go Go's got a chance to play. Here's Belinda with pals Pleasant and Wyline. ladies...are we going to see the Flesheaters in two weeks?

The Go Go's had just played a few days before, doing a gig with Black Randy.

Around the very same time, on the Sunset Strip, Ultravox played the Whisky. There was always a whole lot going on musically... and today, I eagerly await April's arrival.... The Flesheaters are playing a Silverlake Club and up in San Francisco a couple days later, the "Mab-Fab" Reunion...Dead Kennedys, Flipper, Avengers and Mutants will be at the Mabuhay...what year is it again?

Geez, what year is it indeed. Weren't these bands all supposed to die young and leave a goodly gruesome corpse?
