totally cool!! thanks Greg!
I always wonder when I look at the crowds in old pics or videos.."where are these people?" haha! well,here is one of them:) welcome!
I am still in LA and still go to gigs (mostly Techno parties/clubs, nowadays) ... 52 years young :biggrin:

Ever since my late teens I have sought out the new and interesting/challenging in music ... Psi Com were definitely new & interesting in 1983/1984! They were loosely aligned with the IPR (Independent Projects Records) axis and I knew many of those people from always going to gigs - Bruce Licher and Ethan Port (Savage Republic), Dino Paredes (Red Temple Spirits), the 2 main guys in Drowning Pool, Abecedarians and so on. In mid 1985 my ex and I moved into a loft east of downtown LA, so we were in a good position to keep tabs on things in the LA scene at the time.

So yeah, I am indeed "one of them" ... I bought "Worktape 1" at one of the Psi Com gigs (at the Anti-Club I think, but I could be wrong) and still own it. I also have the "L.A. Mantra II" tapes as well.

Nice find Mike!!!

I don't recall if I went to that one - probably not because I'd just been to the On Klub show the night before (which as I've said I didn't much like ... ) and also because I didn't care for either the Fiends or the Nip Drivers (strange bill!).

I did go to several of those Sunday afternoon Beyond Baroque events (colloquially dubbed "Beyond BBQ") however such as Savage Republic and Abecedarians later that same month.

It doesn't look like it from the thumbnail, but I upgraded that LA Weekly scan

I'll "upgrade" my previous comments to say that I/we probably went to that show because of Kommunity FK (who we saw a lot), and Psi-Com was the icing on the cake.
