My Father's Place

Roslyn, NY

Setlist Included:

Don't Be A Moon / Controversial, Only Your Nose Knows, Hangover


Max opened for The Dictators on this night. The show was in the spring, as Mike Tilka notes between songs that their second album will be released soon (which was in May; an incomplete recording of the show is mislabelled as November 3). During this monologue Kim noodles a bit of Girl From Ipanema.

In 2017 Mike Tilka recalled that there were about 6 people in the bar, and that the agents the band were hoping would come didn't show up, so they packed up after their set and drove home.

This is the last known live airing of the Zappa-inspired piece Don't Be A Moon / Controversial.
