Dead Boys 

Live at CBGB's (1977 DVD) (MVD)

Be forewarned: If you buy this DVD for your family's resident punk fanatic this holiday season -- and you most definitely should -- he/she may spontaneously combust from excitement, and this fiery film may just set off ol' Tannenbaum, as well.

Live at CBGB's is the stuff punk-rock dreams are made of: a three-camera, full-color, stereo video of a Dead Boys gig during the band's peak. The performance is super, and it's nearly as much fun to watch the odd mix of befuddled squares and coked-up groupies who packed CB's at its zenith.

The extras are fab -- post-show quickie interviews with the band, a cool local-TV commercial, and new interviews with CB's owner (and former Dead Boys manager) Hilly Krystal and guitarist Cheetah Chrome. Seriously, it's the first indispensable punk-rock DVD. Just keep it away from the Chanukah bush.

We’re keeping you informed…
...and it’s what we love to do. From local politics and culture to national news that hits close to home, Scene Magazine has been keeping Cleveland informed for years.

It’s never been more important to support local news sources, especially as we all deal with the ramifications of the coronavirus pandemic. Almost everything Scene is about -- our stories, our events, our advertisers -- comes down to getting together. With events on hold, and no print distribution for the foreseeable future, every little bit helps.

A free press means accountability and a well-informed public, and we want to keep our unique and independent reporting available for many, many years to come.

If quality journalism is important to you, please consider a donation to Scene. Every reader contribution is valuable and so appreciated, and goes directly to support our coverage of critical issues and neighborhood culture. Thank you.
