Various boots indicate that this is probably the second set (though this write up indicates that the first set started with "I Feel Alright"), but regardless....this was the night UK punk came to New York City and kicked it in the ass.

It must be tough when all you want to be is a shit kicking honky tonk band from Texas, but it's the 1980s and you have to make a living sneaking a couple of Ray Price and George Straight tunes into a set filled with covers of the chart toppers of the day like ROMANTICS, Lionel Riche and HALL & OATES.
