While I missed the Dead Kennedys legendary performance at the Belmont Ballroom on our nation’s 205th birthday, I was lucky enough to see the Dead Kennedys a couple of times in the mid-1980s.
The second time was in 1985 at the Wilson Theater, and all I remember about it was Jello Biafra going off on a long rant about Safeway, and it seeming a bit weird to see them in a theater setting as opposed to a club setting.
The first time? Ahhhhh, therein lies a bit of a story . . .
