The Dream Syndicate (1988)

July 14, 1988

LA’s Dream Syndicate were one of the foundational bands in the so-called Paisley Underground movement of the early ‘80s. Led by songwriter/guitarist Steve Wynn, they returned in 1988 on Deirdre’s birthday for their second SNAP performance.

The local legends played a fiery set in anticipation of their “Ghost Stories” album, which would be released the following month.
