Automatic Pilot performances:
Mon Jan 25, 1982

1748 Haight Street
On Monday nights the I-Beam, normally a disco, featured live performances by popular local rock bands.

We opened for Silvertone, with Chris Isaak before he started peforming under his own name.

The local rock scene in San Francisco was very competitive. We held our own; the crowd was not real enthusiastic, but not hostile either; respectful, even.

This was the second time we played the I-Beam; the first was BELCH 'N' BOOGIE in 1980. This was also the first time John Selby joined us on stage.

As the poster indicates, we played a number of songs including "Rape and Seduction", which was later re-titled "Escape in Seduction" but ultimately did not become a permanent part of our repertory.
