Los Angeles -- Christian demonstrators protest outside a punk rock show at the Starwood. They carry signs reading, "Jesus Saves from Hell," and one that implores, "Music is OK . . . but More Bible, Less Music!" (1980)

I only wish I knew who was performing at that night's "Punk Rock" show . . . .

If I hadn't read the date, I would have guessed from the protesters clothes it was the late fifties/early sixities. I'd be pissed if I was a sixteen year old girl who still had to dress like a Father Knows Best extra in 1980 too.

On the one hand, for the longest time the house band at the Starwood was Black Oak Arkansas. On the other hand, the Starwood isn't there anymore. So it's hard to say exactly who won this battle.
