BOINGO-TOBER 5! - BAND PLAYS HIGH SCHOOL IN 1980 AND TEENAGE RIOT BREAKS OUT - THE HORROR!!

As a historical document and at performance level, this is a one-of-a-kind boot. Danny & gang do a concert in the high school which has to be stopped several times as the Dean Of Students, the Student Body President and even Danny himself try and calm the kiddies down. While they do finish the show, it's pretty clear it was probably intended to go on longer, they probably decided to high-tail it out of there and save their lives. Ok, so the bad news- It's a cassette soundboard swipe but it's unbalanced and bass amp wasn't mic'd so it's buried deep in a hole. Lol, also there are a couple of cuts in songs. All in all it's a great listen for the seasoned Boingo fan, otherwise.....The Horror!! 7daylink Rating B+
AND TO END THINGS ON AN EDUCATIONAL NOTE (GET IT? HIGH SCHOOL?) IF YOU LIKE TO READ, THIS LINK IS A TRANSCRIPT TO A COMMENCEMENT SPEECH GIVEN BY DANNY DECADES LATER. NOT ONLY AN AMAZING CONTRAST TO THIS LIVE SHOW BUT AN INSPIRATION TO ANYONE IN ARTS MUSIC OR OTHERWISE, HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
THE HORROR!!
