Minor Threat Live @ Rollerworks, 1983

After seeing Ian do a Q&A this past Saturday in New Jersey, I thought it was only fitting to post the following videos. We also managed to video tape the Q&A, so look for segments from that to be posted here on DCXX within the next couple of weeks.

As for these videos, it's
Minor Threat as a five piece from Flipside video 2, shot at Rollerworks in 1983. I've seen other versions of some of the songs from this show that might be better quality, but I figured I'd go with the full set as opposed to a few songs. It's been awhile since I've seen this and I honestly forgot how incredible it is. Out Of Step... -Tim DCXX

I got this video in 1986 and it didn't leave my VCR for about 3 weeks.

Best. Show. Video. Ever.

nearly unmatched energy and attitude. notice how they are legitimately pretty tight. brian baker should go down as one of the all time greats with this video to prove it. there are bands and there are immortals. this is the latter.

Two of my best friends were at this show.

I am jealous.

I was five.
