3 different Butthole Surfers shows from the Chestnut Cabaret – the first is from one of Don Sheluga’s tapes (Thanks Don) and the other 2 were already up on archive.org
I missed some song titles if anyone can figure out the titles of the ones listed as unknown please let me know.
Butthole Surfers Live at Chestnut Cabaret on 10-21-1989
The Dicks from the Elk’s Center in Atlantic City. I don’t have a flyer for this one but I’m assuming it was the same summer as the other ones I posted so 1985. The Dicks and the Big Boys were my favorite of the Austin bands of the early 80’s. I never got to see either of them live but did see a lot of later bands (Sister Double Happiness, Bad Mutha Goose, Monkeywrench, Swine King, Scratch Acid) by members of both. They did a good mix of songs from all their releases in this set. Both sides of the Peace/War 7″ and both albums Kill From the Heart and These People. It looks like the only Dicks music available is the Alternative Tentacles comp 1980-86 It has songs from all their releases but I have no idea why they just didn’t put everything on the cd.
Thanks again to Pete at Sounds of Tomorrow. for the beta tapes
To the best of my knowledge all of the music links are for recordings that are out of print but if you enjoy what you hear, buy other records and support the artist(s) and/or labels: if you don't approve of having your material displayed and would like to have it down...
