1991

Mass Affliction at the Banana, fall 1991.  As all-ages shows became more popular and drew younger fans, the bands got younger, too.  For their efforts, Mass Affliction were paid with pizza.
From this point on, photos and flyers courtesy of Bill Munz.

The Great Kat poses in character with Bill Munz at the Electric Banana on 6/9/91.  Bill seems to know that it's an act.  Or is it?  The guy on the right looks concerned.
Scroll down to see a flyer from the above Great Kat show, as well as others of Mass Affliction and many more artists.
