NAUSEA and the FALSE PROPHETS at the Central Park band shell for a Rock Against Racism, organized by the Yippies.
Most of my close friends over the next 3-4 years would be at that show.
A definite high water mark event for the underground NYC punk scene.

Here are some photos from the day taken by my man John A.:
Neil on the mic
Amy on the mic
These photos are great because the crowd shots show faces I remember vividly, most of whose names I can still instantly recall. I was wide eyed back then, taking in everything.
I've said it before and I'll say it again- when you catch shows like this one young like I did it kind of ruins you, because rock n roll and music in general rarely ever comes across as raw or as important as it did at shows like this one. Even back then I knew I was a witnessing realness, and I'd better appreciate it as much as possible. And I definitely did!
