ShareThisThe historic underground act The Dead Kennedys have been influencing contemporary music, while being unconventional trend-setters, since 1978.
Ahead of two island dates, founder and guitarist East Bay Ray told HPR’s Dave Lawrence how the band’s provocative name is a sort of anguished memorial to the best of American values.
Local promoters Underworld Events bring The Dead Kennedys October 22nd to The Hard Rock Café Maui in Lahaina, and October 23rd to The Loft in Honolulu. http://underworldevents.com has more information. Hear a Dead Kennedys classic below.
