Live at CBGB1982

  • 3.8
On Christmas Eve 1982, Bad Brains began a three-day stint at a hardcore festival hosted by the legendary CBGB. The very best of these shows was culled from over four hours of footage. Though their live performances were legendary, their visual recordings were impossible to find. These powerful performances are revisited here in extraordinary fashion.

"...a sight to behold: The Bad Brains at the height of their power, HR shaking hands in the crowd, dancing like a madman, seething and stalking the stage." - Zach Baron, Pitchfork

Great band, great energy.

I hate watching concerts on videos (I'd rather be AT it) but I was entertained by the crowd and despite hating concerts on video, I just loved Bad Brains live too much. I mean...they were just electric and it rubbed off on the crowd. The whole thing was awesome to watch.

saw them in 86 at the FARM SF......wish i saw these shows......killing it !!!
