"The Way I Walk"
Live at Napa State Mental Hospital
The above video of The Cramps performing at Napa State Mental Hospital is stamped "1984", but the event actually happened in 1978.  Yes, Johnny's Folsom was great, but this has to be the coolest gig ever.

Speaking of cool gigs, I'm going to see The Hangmen tonight, tomorrow The Dandy Warhols. By the way, if you haven't seen the documentary Dig featuring The Dandys, rent it. I thought it was really well done, and I'm tough to please.
