Beastie Boys Live at The Kitchen in 1983


Whoa, you gotta watch this video! According to the video uploader, the Bay Area Video Coalition, the video was filmed at The Kitchen in New York City on December 12, 1983. The description provided by the Coalition says, "In this clip we get an inside look at the Beastie Boys shortly after going through puberty and well before they had any discernible talent."

The sound is bad on the first song. The second song is the Beastie Boys covering Quiet Riot's "Cum on Feel the Noize," with Mike Diamond taking some liberties with the lyrics. Yowzah!

Holy Shit this is RAD! What's the first song?! It's so cute to see Kate givin'er on the kit. I'd love to see them have her guest drum at a show. Could you imagine?

"Before they had any discernible talent" and before they had any fashion sense. ;)

Don't diss the wardrobe. Horovitz and Diamond had some wood chopping to do after their set.

Totally rad! I would love to see the whole show. There were probably 10 people total in the audience.

The video is a good reminder of how long they've been making music together and been friends.
