Dead Milkmen play SOB
October 25, 1986
Cindy Underwood // This was the first punk show that I had ever been to. I was 15 at northeast high school and it was actually a KABF benefit show. We had to have somenone's mom drop us off and pick us up. It was the first time I had ever "slam danced".

It seems like thats the last show I remember until I was a junior in high school when DMZ opened. // Part 1 from 18 YEARS AGO: "We then drive to Little Rock, Arkansas. We go to a mall so Rodney can see the "Great Pumpkin". Dan and I wander the mall - it's funny - we get all kinds of great stares. Then to eat at a BBQ place - good food.

Great - almost all the shirts sold.

We have to move to the back room for the bar show - the cartoons are in the front room (?). Some of us go to a radio station and tape a good interview. Back to the club to eat dinner. I find a $10 bill. We sound check - OK but a bit muddy on stage. Hang out. People arrive and the opening band plays - 'Gun Bunnies'. OK pop songs - too many covers - they were just having fun anyway. The place is very crowded. I forget to put my snares on for the opening song - I flipped midway. We played a good show. 2 encores - did "Hangin' Round" - the 'Monkees' also played tonight in ...
