I was such a huge Ramones fan that I got to the El Mocambo club quite
early (around 4:00PM) and tried to get into their soundcheck.
Unfortunately, their manager, Monte, wouldn't let anyone in so I hung out
downstairs until they finished their soundcheck (which was great, by the
way... ). I was one of the first people through the door and I got a seat
five rows back & directly in from of the stage, so I that could stand on
my chair to take pictures. Tommy was drumming for them, and they were
fantastic that night! The tiny club was packed and the Ramones DID provide some Shock
Treatment! I was seated next to Mickey Skin from the local punk band, The
Curse, too and if I'm not mistaken, Teenage Head opened the show...
