MCA Day Is Saturday + Beasties in the Archives

by Gary Pini

Brooklyn performance and art space Littlefield (622 Degraw Street) is celebrating the life of Adam Yauch tomorrow, May 4, starting at 11 a.m.  Stop in and spend a little time reminiscing -- or whatever floats your boat -- about Adam, the Beastie Boys and that time you caught them with Run-D.M.C at the Garden. We sent one of our interns down into the PAPER archives and dug-up this review of the "Rock Hard" 12-inch from back in April, 1985, when the boys where just out of high school and Rick Rubin was a student at NYU and running Def Jam out of his dorm room. Check it out below. (Apologies for the cropping job here, early issues of Paper were published as one big poster and they're tough to scan!)
