Mike Watt & The Missingmen
Sun, Oct 20 8:00 pm

Mike Watt & The Missingmen: Bassist Mike Watt was the living embodiment of the punk rock spirit. As a founding member of the highly influential Minutemen, he created one of the most important bodies of work in the American underground canon, delivering adventurous, fiercely polemical music informed by such disparate traditions as funk, folk, and free jazz. Although his subsequent material -- most notably his records with the trio fIREHOSE, as well as his latter-day solo efforts -- lacked the sheer impact of his earliest outings, Watt remained true to the D.I.Y. ethos that originally inspired him, emerging as one of the most highly respected figures in contemporary music. Joecephus And The George Jonestown Massacre: Blazing a trail out of Memphis, Tennessee, Joecephus and the George Jonestown Massacre are on a roll. Having been referred to as “a cross between Motorhead and Merle Haggard” and having served as opening acts for such diverse artists as Shooter Jennings, David Allan Coe, Jesco White The Dancing Outlaw, Jim Dickinson, Unknown Hinson, Green Jello, Scott Biram, The Reverend Horton Heat, H. R. of the legendary Bad Brains and many more.  Look What I Did: "Look What I Did (band) is the musical representation of chaos, and I mean that in the best way possible. Yet amongst the dissonant, genre- clashing mayhem, this band gives the listener a fresh melodic center to grasp onto. This center may be hard to find, but Look What I Did does this through musical design. Vocalist Barry Donegan says, 'We make it hard to listen to on purpose,'. Their intention is to not give you the easy route, a three and half minute song focused around basic structure and harmony. Instead, their focus is on giving the listener a gut-wrenching journey that may or may not follow with a pop song hook. It’s the daring and dynamic process of struggle and reward- to which Look What I Did is great at doing! Open your ears to the alternative progressive sound of Look What I Did.”-Beau Cooper of Indie Ville TV
