New Wave Theater was a cable access show in LA during the early 80s hosted by Peter Ivers. The show regularly had anarchic performances from the music underground, including bands like Black Flag, Circle Jerks, Castration Squad and 45 Grave. The show ran until Peter Ivers was found brutally murdered in his apartment in 1983.
Of trivial note: Peter Ivers was responsible for co-writing the "Lady in the Radiator Song" (from Eraserhead) with David Lynch.
