70s. David was at the "Punk Massacre" show at the Elks Lodge in Macarthur Park on March 17, 1979. While he did receive a baton

trampled on by people running out of the venue. The collection consists of a copy of SLUSH #2; one Go-Go's St. Patrick's Dance
at Elks Hall setlist; four punk buttons, one St. Patrick's Dance at Elks Hall poster and one guest list; one Los Angeles Times
clipping concerning the police raid at Elks Hall show; one white plastic X; three audiocassettes; one black bound scrapbook
of autographs which includes tickets to shows and band stickers.
