California Fun

This week marks the anniversary of the first-ever West Coast trip for the Dictators in 1977. They borrowed the Ramones van and headed way out west. The Left Coast has never been the same.  

The trip started and ended with gigs at the Mabuhay Gardens in San Fran, with gigs in Berkeley and Palo Alto in between. The great-looking poster below is from the final show, and the famous pic above of the 6-man lineup was taken backstage at the Mabuhay. Scott appears to have borrowed eye-liner from Johnny Thunders in this pic!
