Mike Watt and Friends


To celebrate the release of the Minuteman’s photo-driven memoir, Mike Watt: On and Off Bass, the ever-unpredictable four-stringer has assembled a star-studded release party. The main draw is his performance with Dinosaur Jr. vocalist-guitarist J Mascis and drummer Murph, but considering that he has spent time in a bevy of underground rock’s finest (the Minutemen, fIREHOSE, the Stooges, Ciccone Youth), the book excerpt portion could prove just as interesting, especially since they’re promising “very special surprise guests.” With Appomattox and Dead Trend.
