Dead Boys - Sonic Reducer, CBGB's 1977
In honor of CBGB's imminent closing, I want to post a bunch of videos from the club. Here we have the Dead Boys playing Sonic Reducer at the club in 1977. This track is a total classic, and one of the best rock songs ever written. I think it's amazing that someone had the foresight to film this back then, especially with the multiple angles. It's weird to see the club on film, it always looks so big, but the smallness (and the filth) never translates, making CBGB's something you had to experience for yourself.
