This rad punk t-shirt is from a concert featuring the bands Suicidal Tendencies and One Way System. The show was performed on October 20th, 1984 at the Grand Olympic Auditorium in California. This famous punk venue has hosted a variety of notable bands including The Exploited, T.S.O.L., Bad Religion, Circle Jerks, The Dickies, and Dead Kennedys.
The show took place during the early years of Suicidal Tendencies' career, shortly after they released their self-titled debut album, which contained their most famous hit, "Institutionalized". The song was one of the first hardcore punk tracks to receive significant airplay on MTV, which helped to attract a growing interest in the band. Meanwhile One Way System had been slated to tour with Circle Jerks that year, but the tour was canned when the band's vocalist, Keith Morris broke his neck. One Way System's performance at the show was recorded and later released on the concert VHS, No Return.
