Lunch Break: Dead Boys, “I Need Lunch”

Screenshot 2014-04-22 12.09.31Pat Ivers and Emily Armstrong happened to have the excellent idea to shoot video of many performances at CBGB in the late 70s and early 80s, one of which is this performance of the Dead Boys.

Pat and Emily have been preserving their material, which is being archived at NYU, and through May and July will be showing the videos at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York.

They also maintained a blog for a while, with clips and good stories about the bands, which you can find here.

Many clips are hosted on Vimeo, under the name go nightclubbing.

Plus there are more clips and info at the site.

See you in about year.

One thought on “Lunch Break: Dead Boys, “I Need Lunch”

  1. Great stuff. If the Dead Boys first album wasn’t in my top 50 it was damn close. Amazing and wonderful when one looks at the audience at these fairly early punk shows. Today’s punk and it’s audiences are so uniformed and choreographed. And boring.
