No Wave Nightclubbing at the Mudd Club with DNA (1979)

After a somewhat lengthy hiatus (in blogging time anway), the Nightclubbing column with Pat & Emily is back! They've been waiting on Bedford & Bowery (which has replaced East Village Local) to get it together. Anyway, they're back with a No Wave bang this week with DNA...enjoy!
