1ST TIME U SAW DANZIG? 1988 for me
I was 15, a true misfits and samhain fan. From this show on-a Danzig fan for life!!!
I just got my learners permit to drive. My dad made me drive me and my friend to the show. It was quite embarrassing to me at the time, cause if any one remembers, the Arcadia in Dallas had this front cirle drive, right in front of the venue. That is exactly where my dad wanted me to pull in, despite my begging to do the switching of the drivers on one of the side roads. After my dads extra loud goodbyes and be goods, i was able to be excited for getting to go to this show.
Only got to see a few shows at the Arcadia, by far this is my favorite. Danzig, headlined but also on the bill, was SOUNDGARDEN, a relatively new band to me. I believe was the loud love tour, for them. Also a fresh new band to the scene, WHITE ZOMBIE!!!!!!!!! whoo-hoo.
insta love for them. also if i remember right a band called Warrior Soul, also played. I really just remember how much i loved the singers hair, a true hair farmer, for sure, but didnt like the band much.
Was a fantastic show, me and my friend ran past the bouncer like we had done this shit before and was up front before we could say, ITS A LONG WAY BACK FROM HELL!!!!!!!!!!!!
I STILL HAVE MY ORIGINAL DANZIG SHIRT FROM THIS SHOW!!!!!! and ive been a fan ever since.
