The Time The Cramps Visited Lubbock
I have seen some CRAZY shows in Lubbock, and this may go down as the craziest.
Lubbock was very much on the routing for a lot of punk bands. The Clash, 999, U2, The Talking Heads (both were considered punk at the time) all played the Hub City. I was able to witness many of these shows and one of the craziest and one of the few that lived up to the punk name was "The Cramps".
Like a lot of legendary Lubbock shows, this is one of those shows that few people were at, but everyone talked about. Not only was it epic, the next day the band was arrested leaving Lubbock.
