Archive Diver: Alien Sex Fiend, BTO, Dizzy, Leo Casino, Iggy, Jay Leno, and Poison

Alien Sex Fiend aka the Fucking Martians, ok we just made that up, were booked at Respectable Street Cafe in West Palm and the Cameo Theatre on Miami Beach back in 1988.

The Miami New Times Concert Calendar from the week of October 12 - 18, 1988 also featured Neil Diamond, The Moody Blues, Jay Leno, B.B. King, Dizzy Gillespie, Bachman Turner Overdrive, Iggy Pop, Little Feat, Three Dog Night, and Poison.

Some of those acts are not only still recording, playing and touring, but also still coming to South Florida. Respec. Here are some more old ads, after the jump.

Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
