The B-52’s :: The Downtown Cafe – Sept 2, 1978 / Atlanta, GA

The following footage, captured live in Atlanta in 1978, finds the B-52's at their most primal. A Saturday night gig held over Labor Day weekend, the grainy, black & white concert opens with a raw "52 Girls," before sliding into "Dance This Mess Around," "Hero Worship," "Rock Lobster," "The Devil's In My Car," and more. As a testament to the performances, the humidity and funk emanating from the club are almost palpable some 40+ years later . . .
