D.O.A. at DNA on DVD - A farewell performance from one of punk's most notorious bands.
From the mid-'70s to the mid-'80s, San Francisco's North Beach played host to a vibrant outlaw music scene. During this time, Dirk Dirksen, a producer at two seminal venues, the Fab Mab and On Broadway Theater, staged over 3,200 concerts with over 20,000 artists. One raw rock 'n' roll protest band from Canada, D.O.A., played the Fab Mab in 1978 and went on to become a mainstay and social conscience of the scene. By the mid-'80s, changing trends caused many of the outlaw artists to move from North Beach to a section south of Market Street where one club, the DNA lounge, carried on the legendary Fab Mab tradition. It was there, at 10:30 on a Tuesday night. November 20, 1990 that D.O.A. gave its last performance. Now D.O.A. lives on... on DVD.
