The Dead Kennedys were the main influence for some of my favorite bands, while I had never really gotten into them, Greenday, The offspring and The Living End all got at least some of their sounds from them.
When the chance came up I had to jump at it. With a 40 year span and 35 years since they toured Australia all the shows were sold out, I knew this one would be huge.
I thought it would be a rough show but with aging punters the crowd were not as intense as they once were, Punk bands are known for their short songs, I spent about six minutes in the photo pit and was kicked from it before I knew it.
with an extra ticket in hand I was able to bring my wife along, it was a great show that I would have missed out on had my media pass not have come through. The Dead kennedys are a must see, after 40 years they’ve still got it.
