Title supplied by cataloger. Influenced by L.A. 60s legends The Byrds and The Buffalo Springfield, The Bangles set themselves apart from other all-female bands of the era. Their blend of sixties-influenced folk rock and melodic vocal harmonies gained them major commercial and critical success with the songs, "Walk Like An Egyptian" and "Manic Monday." At the time this was taken, the band was known as The Bangs. Photograph used for two articles dated September 10, 1982 and January 29, 1983; the caption for the later reads, "While lacking polish, the Bangles performed with unbridled enthusiasm to capture the Roxy crowd's hearts." The group is shown leaning against a bus bench on Sunset Boulevard at La Brea Avenue, across the street from Tiny Naylor's.
