Social Distortion- Aftershock Festival, Discovery Park, Sacramento Ca. 10/10/21 Live 4K DPA Audio

This was the surprise set of the fest for me. I used to be a huge Social D fan back in the early 2000’s. I loved the Sex Love and Rock and Roll album- it was one of my most listened-to albums of the past 20 years. When they came out with that Hard Times album, it bored the hell out of me. I went to a show in 2011 and it also bored the hell out of me. So I had kinda written them off as a nostalgia band for the pompadour and classic car crowd.
They do 2 songs from the Sex Love album- not even the hits but a couple of my favorites. They also do a new song called “The Way Things Were”, which sounds like it could be off the Sex Love album. Wow! Sorry I doubted them.
Looking forward to the new album now.

Social Distortion- Eddie Egan’s Party, Perris Ca 7/4/88 Lossless VHS xfer from low gen tape enhanced

After posting the Flower Leperds show yesterday, I learned that the filmer is Dave Brooks AND that his master tapes have been digitized by Nicholas Serra. D’oh, I didn’t connect the dots with this one- Nicholas sent me a list of his stuff about 6 months ago and I forgot. Oh well, this version is still way better than the one already posted on youtube (240p resultion vs. this one). R.I.P. Eddie Egan

Social Distortion- Goodie’s, Fullerton Ca. 6/21/87 Audio Only xfer from master audio tape Live Ness

I had planned to post this one yesterday- under the running joke that for father’s day, here is the ultimate dad punk band. But the kids kept me busy and I missed out on that joke. Damn. And I just realized that yesterday was the 33 year anniversary of the show. D’oh.
Anyway, this was recorded by a friend of Anonymous. Anonymous lived in the L.A. area up until 1987, and he had the older brother of a friend take his recorder and tape this show, as Anonymous wasn’t yet 18. This older brother was a typical 1980’s L.A. punk, and would get drunk/thrown out of shows often. He even passed out drunk while taping a different show- you were able to listen to the staff wake him up and get him out of there.
This is a rare recording, as it was during Social D’s dark period, when they were dealing with some personal issues and did not tour. Really cool, unique setlist.
