Chris Boarts Larson Photo Column—Half Life

Pittsburgh Punk! Half Life were the Pittsburgh punk band in the late ’80s. The first time I saw them was in 1986 when they came to play in State College. This photo is from the second or third time they played at Findley Hall at Penn State where there was a series of excellent DIY-booked shows with some rad bands that I’m thrilled to have had the chance to see as a young punk (like the Descendents, COC, Life Sentence, and Dr. Know, to name a few).
