What a Drag It Is!

Club 82 adOn this day in 1976, the Dictators played a short set at the 82 Club, a down-on-its-heels drag bar on 4th St. between 2nd Ave. and the Bowery. Glam and punk bands bumped elbows, and hopefully nothing else, on the club’s stage while the show “girls” danced in front of the band. Video footage from this gig sadly does not exist, but if it did, I think it would be more popular than a clip of Jesus Christ on roller skates.

The set list:

1.  What Goes On
2.  California Sun
3.  Tits to You
4.  The Next Big Thing
5.  America the Beautiful

    Although no video footage exists, the audio of the entire set is now posted on YouTube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K19ffuqZNsA
