Punk Sex: Dead Kennedys Gig at Belly Up Goes Tits Up.

Punk Sex: Dead Kennedys Gig at Belly Up Goes Tits Up.

I was amused to read of a gig by US Punk band the Dead Kennedys who were ‘blown off’-stage by a couple who got up and (as British newspapers call it) ‘performed a sex act’ during their set.

Famous for tracks such as ‘Too Drunk to Fuck’, The Dead Kennedys, who get an honourable mention in my Punk and New Wave memoir, Bombed Out!, are no strangers to sexual controversy. For example they inserted a poster of a piece of art called ‘Penis Landscape’ (which consisted of penises and vaginas) into their Frankenchrist album in 1985. This led to the band being prosecuted for obscenity in the US, but the charges were eventually dropped after an inconclusive jury verdict.

So in that context, a bit of oral sex at a Dead Kennedys gig isn’t that shocking.

During their gig at the Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach, San Diego, the couple got onstage and, right in front of the audience, the man gave oral sex to the woman.

Apparently, members of the audience, at first amused, took some photos and video then went back to watching the band, which is an impressive testament to the band’s live set.

Lucky Penetration or The Members weren't playing....

The two people involved in the incident were eventually thrown out, and because no complaints were made about the ‘lewd act’ there was no police action following the gig either.
