Here are some black and white pics I took at a 1990 Cramps show at First Ave in Minneapolis. I developed the negatives shortly after the show, but never made any prints. But two weeks ago, I scanned and digitized them, and posted the results on Facebook.

Enjoy.

Lux: https://www.facebook.com/Spiff666/media ... 314&type=1

By the way, this was the show at which I crawled atop the enormous floor speakers, so I could get some really close up shots.

I can't imagine the bouncers allowing anything like that today. Maybe back then they saw my rather elaborate camera and flash set-up and just assumed that I had a press pass or something (which I did not).

Also, Lux came over and took off the eyeglasses I was wearing at the time, and wore them for two or three songs.

I don't have any pics of that, because I was practically blind without my glasses then, and so I stopped shooting.
