Info & Setlist | Venue

Co-manager Francis Duffy is able to get Earth hired for a small band performance role in very low budget soft-core adult movie being made under the work-in-progress title of N.Y.P.D. Now You're Practically Dead. This was not a public concert performance, as the film's director apparently rented Bill Graham's Fillmore East as the shoot location. During Earth's performance scene a naked girl dances onstage amongst Bruce and the band. People were having sex (or simulating it) on the lighting rig above Springsteen, and at one point underwear falls onto the end of his guitar. A brother of Earth bassist John Graham has confirmed to Brucebase that the events did indeed occur. The film was never released. The film's director, the film company involved and the possible whereabouts of any surviving footage all remain a mystery. It is likely that this was a relatively major undertaking by the filmmakers as Bill Graham was hiring this venue out around this time for £3,000, a cost that would almost certainly have been beyond the reach of film students.
