On September 10th, 1989, Redd Kross played at Maxwell’s. At this point in their career, the band completed the transition from playing hardcore punk to power-pop. Case in point, their 1987 album, Neurotica was inspired mostly by breakfast cereal. The band was about a year removed from releasing Third Eye, which was considered by many to be their power-pop masterpiece. Redd Kross played with The Embarassment (from Kansas) and The Pussy Willows (from New Jersey) on September 10th at the Rapp Arts Center in the East Village. Both groups also played this gig at Maxwell’s!
