Archive Diver: Concert Calendar for August 1988, AC/DC, Beatlemania, Steven Wright, The Vandals, James Taylor

Back in August 1988 South Florida had a pretty good line-up of shows at venues from the Hollywood Sportatorium to the James L. Knight Center to the Kendall Town and Country Mall to the Fontainebleau back up to the Button South.

The Dope Jam brought together Eric B and Rakim, Doug E. Fresh, Kool Moe D., Biz Markie and Ice T.

Teen pop sensation Tiffany had a show.

Steven Wright, aka The Guy On The Couch in Half Baked and the KBilly radio announcer in Reservoir Dogs, was booked at the Carefree Theatre in West Palm Beach.

Punk rockers The Vandals, The Mentors, No Fraud and Shudder To Think were lined up at The Cameo on South Beach.

After the jump, check out the full archival concert listing from a Miami New Times issue from the week of August 10 to 16, 1988.
