NOTES: Keith Morris filled in on vocals. Also this month: Joe Nolte (the Last) was supposed to join Black Flag as vocalist and second guitarist (12 string). On the night of his debut his voice went out and he had to leave the band in the lurch. It may have been the show listed above. Or the 6th. Or some other night. Hard to know for sure.
