Join Me Next Weekend, March 5 in Los Angeles

Here's a photo of me, taken in April 1978 in San Francisco, CA.  It was another of the now-notorious Lobotomy road trips.

Pleasant, Randy Detroit, Kid Congo, Nancy and I piled into my little Honda and drove to San Francisco from Los Angeles, as we did for any show we wanted to see.  With so many of us traveling, it was more cost effective to drive, plus there was that four hours of crazy conversation and radio roulette to enjoy on the way.

This particular road trip was to see Blondie play at the Greek Theatre on campus at UC Berkeley.  We didn't know it at the time, but the record they were working on, Parallel Lines (which was released five months later), would break them through to levels of international fame that none of us ever considered.

If you're in Southern California, come see Pleasant and me at the Lethal Amounts Gallery for our show (Teenage) Lobotomy: Fanzine Art & Photos from the 1970s LA Punk Scene
