Dead Kennedys @ The Workers

Posted: November 22, 2010 at 8:48 pm

It was 1983 when Cronulla Beach saw its first riot after a Dead Kennedys concert at the Workers Club. The notorious punk band with the offensive name were popular with many Surfers. The DKS were renown for their radical political stance and wild concerts worked the crowd into a frenzy. After the show the party continued onto the street where the Police were called and things got out of hand. There was fighting, a few windows were smashed and several Police cars were damaged as the crowd went crazy with a few of the more drunken revellers carted off and arrested.
