Thought a themed post was well overdue. Today...The Ritz. Some I may have already posted but links will be dead...some are new from me...and the rest....well...who knows. And as always, I invite anybody with shows recorded here to upload in this space... T&C's apply [NO Prog, NO Nirvana/Green Day, NO Jedward and so on and so forth]. I've put these up in order of date. And if you think for one moment i'm typing up tracklists for this lot, then you're crazier than I thought.

PS: does anybody have Adam and the Ants 08/04/81 [was sure I had that].

The Ritz was founded in 1980 by Jerry Brandt in the historic Webster Hall ballroom and concert space on 11th Street between Third and Fourth Avenues in the East Village neighbourhood of New York City. The address was 119 East 11th Street.

Jase, I've just had a quick conversation with a mate, and he was telling me that the Ants show at The Ritz 8/4/81 is actually The Roxy, CA 13/4/81. You know anything about that?
The Roxy show on the 13th is out there, sometimes under the names of Creative Artistry or Tiki Gods, the first part was also released as Tender Ants, this is the one sometimes mixed up with The Ritz show due to the different track list. The track list for the Roxy show is:

Intro & Human Beings
Dog Eat Dog
Stand and Deliver
Magnificent Five
Don't Be Square (Be There)
Los Rancheros
Ants Invasion
Killer in The Home
Cleopatra
Press Darlings
Kick
Fall in
Beat My Guest
Jolly Roger
Zerox
Cartrouble
Antmusic
Kings of the Wild Frontier
A.N.T.S.
Physical (You're so)

To confuse things even more they also did The Roxy on the next night too!

If I can find them I have all 3 show's.
