  • This show was a couple of weeks after the 9/18/81 show, which makes it likely to be October 2nd or October 9th. The show brought the band its first review, by Mark Coleman, for the New York Rocker. Coleman praised "a stunning purity in the range of sounds the guitars encompass" and rhythms that "hit in the pit of the stomach, instead of the cerebellum" (quotes from "Confusion is Next"). He also admitted to not understanding the lyrics.

  • Lee says the band was just playing the five songs from the first EP, and maybe one or two other sketchy things.
