Dead Kennedys - the Early Years Live (78-81)


On February 18th, the Throwing Muses Kristin Hersh tweeted:

I told her that if he started a petition, I'd sign it. I don't know that the DKs are more worthy than all the Presidents but it would make for a much more interesting holiday. I'm pretty sure that Martin at Dangerous Minds would sign it as well. A day later he was kind enough to post the Dead Kennedys - the Early Years, a collection of footage recorded at various shows in San Francisco and Berkeley from 1978 to 1981. He also posted some footage of the band in the studios during those days - if you're a DK fan, you should go have a look.
