The Dicks – Elk’s Lodge, Atlantic City


The Dicks from the Elk’s Center in Atlantic City. I don’t have a flyer for this one but I’m assuming it was the same summer as the other ones I posted so 1985. The Dicks and the Big Boys were my favorite of the Austin bands of the early 80’s. I never got to see either of them live but did see a lot of later bands (Sister Double Happiness, Bad Mutha Goose, Monkeywrench, Swine King, Scratch Acid) by members of both. They did a good mix of songs from all their releases in this set. Both sides of the Peace/War 7″ and both albums Kill From the Heart and These People.

It looks like the only Dicks music available is the Alternative Tentacles comp 1980-86 It has songs from all their releases but I have no idea why they just didn’t put everything on the cd.
Thanks again to Pete at for the beta tapes

    Hell yeah! I was entirely too young to see the Dicks the first time round but a fringe benefit of living in Texas is that any reunion show is not too far of a drive. I and a buddy or two saw them about 3 years ago during one of their reunion shows. Despite losing a founding member they were still great. They remained just as obnoxious, Texas, and entertaining. Thanks!

    It was the same summer. I was there but it doesn’t really stand out years later. The DOA show was the best.
