The Highwaymen, The Obvious, M.O.M. @ Canal Street Tavern 1/9/1987
This show was one of the first I ever went to at Canal Street Tavern. I really don't recall much of it, but it has been 21 years now.
This was a pretty big show and only $3. The Highwaymen had an album out and were touring. Members later moved to Austin and became the highly acclaimed band Loose Diamonds. The Obvious were still in high school and playing out regularly. I don't recall much about M.O.M. other than the infamous frontman Dennis Schlichter, most likely I got to the show late and missed them all together.
