Flyer for Black Flag’s Everything Went Black Reunion on June 11, 1983 at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium. The performance featured former band members including Ron Reyes, Dez Cadena, Robo, Keith Morris (credited as Johnny Bob Goldstein), and Chuck Dukowski. The Misfits and the Vandals also performed.

Everything Went Black was a double LP issued by SST Records in 1982 that included a compilation of previously unreleased early Black Flag recordings and outtakes produced before Henry Rollins joined as the band’s vocalist in 1981. At the time, Black Flag was involved in a lawsuit with Unicorn Records and were prohibited from putting out new music under their own name. Releasing this archival material, the band believed, was not in violation of the injunction, although Unicorn disagreed. The dispute would finally be resolved in 1983 when the record label went out of business, and Black Flag was able to release new music again.
