David Bowie’s band The Konrads appeared at an event called the South London Beat Show on Sunday 24 November 1963.
Also on the bill were The Wranglers, The Vendettas, Dave Seaton and the Lyons, The Copains, The Cougars, and Peter Budd and the Rebels.
The event took place at Lewisham Town Hall on Catford Road in Catford, London.
By this point Bowie had grown frustrated with The Konrads and was looking for a new band to join. His final show with the group was on 31 December 1963.
