This week in 1988 Blue Oyster Cult came to South Florida and played a show at Summer's in Fort Lauderdale. According to people who like telling stories, at some point in the history of the club New York hardcore band Murphy's Law played a show there. Some kid let off a stolen police-issue canister of tear gas in the club, the place got raided by cops, the band and a bunch of kids got arrested, and Murphy's Law was banned from Fort Lauderdale for a while. But that's neither here nor there. Here's some more info on the Blue Oyster Cult show at Summer's in Fort Lauderdale the week of July 22nd, 1988.
