The Weirdos (Live at Bogarts 1991)

Another excellent upload from LAPunk13

Even in 1991 there was a fun spirit to this set by LA OG’s The Weirdos who were one of the first punk bands to hit the LA scene in the mid to late 70’s.

It’s nice to see this as back on the East Coast where I grew up in 1991 most ‘punk’ shows were really aggressive and violent. The element of a fun time was pretty much absent. This show represents a different time in punk music when people got together to enjoy a kick ass band and have a good time being an outsider…and there’s ‘pogo dancing’!

On a side note I was lucky enough to play with Dix Denny a few times when he auditioned for the Flesh Eaters around 98-99. He came to a few rehearsals before realizing we were going to do some shows, he thought he was going into the studio with us…he didn’t want to do any shows! That would’ve been fun…alas.
