Dead Kennedys - DMPO’s on Braodway (video)

Posted on Saturday, October 16, 2010

I’ve had a sort of shoddy videotape of this performance for about as long as I can remember, so it’s great to finally see and hear it a bit more clearly. And what a show this was! The “infamous” 1984 last gig at DMPO’s (for the place, not the band) saw American Punk Rock pioneers DK possibly at their peak, with such standouts as “Religious Vomit,” “Moral Majority” and “Life Sentence.” Fourteen songs in all, and Jello’s now-dated, yet still relevant, sociopolitical rants between them. And that crazy guy at the end who just wanted to sing… Truly a classic video, now forever free of tape wear in this new digital format. This review seems almost unnecessary, since all DVD-equipped DK fans will buy this as a matter of course. And non-fans (if such an animal could exist) should probably hurry up and start with the Give Me Convenience or Give Me Death CD.
