Republican convention 1984 Dallas

In the summer of 1984, B.G.K. played a protest rally during the Republican convention opening for the Dead Kennedys.


It was right by the actual building. As soon as the repugs came out of the building, they were greeted with a massive "fuck off and die !" roar from the crowd, Jello egging it on. They must have heard that.

After the show was over and the press people had gone, the cops moved in an started beating people bloody. A hundred people were arrested.

That same fateful year 1984, B.G.K. played the "Rock Against Reagan" tour and performed in Washington DC on the 4th of July (!) on THIS EXACT LOCATION :
