Thanks to everyone who came to our show at the Knitting Factory last night. We packed the house until 1AM on a Monday night and that ain’t bad.
Brendan Kelly covered the Misfits. Dave Hause covered Joe Strummer. And Jenny Owen Youngs covered “Ring of Fire” with our surprise guest, Brian Fallon. It was just like watching Johnny and June but with more talk of dildos.
And thanks especially to Kyle Kinane, who not only had a room full of drunk punks at full attention, but also slayed everyone with his jokes about weiners and porn and stuff.
As we mentioned earlier this week, we’re putting on our first show in Brooklyn, NY on November 12. Should be interesting to see what these folks can pull off with just a guitar or in some cases, even less. Here’s a quick preview of the guys and gals who will be playing:
Lots of people know Brendan Kelly, Dave Hause, Jenny Owen Youngs, and Kyle Kinane as semi-entertaining Internet personalities. But did you know that they also play music and do comedy and stuff? Well, that’s what they told us anyway. And we hope they were being serious because we booked them all to play our first JadedPunk.com show on Monday, November 12 in Brooklyn, NY. Tickets have just gone on sale here.
Leave your spike bracelets at home, break out the flannel, and come party with a bunch of old punks!
Stream New Song by Treasure Fleet (members of Smoking Popes, The Lawrence Arms, The Arrivals)
Admittedly, we have not been following Treasure Fleet closely enough. Or maybe we have and we’ve been tripping too hard to notice because this is some serious hippie shit right here. Hard to believe that members of The Lawrence Arms and Smoking Popes could produce this 70’s pysch-rock sound.
Check out this interview with the singer (also from The Arrivals) where he talks about how he named this song “Nitsa” after his daughter. …Wait a minute. Psychedelic 70’s rock? Songs about daughters with hippie names? We are one away sequined lobster costume away from being in Of Montreal territory. Get into it before they start doing Outback commercials.
Republican Punk, Michale Graves, Arrested For Pot Possession
Former frontman of the Misfits during the who-gives-a-shit years, Michale Graves, was arrested this week for possession of 6 grams of marijuana, causing him to miss a show in El Paso, TX with his band, The Whatever The Fuck He’s Doing These Days Ensemble.
The irony of it all seems as good a reason as any to look back at his 2004 appearance on The Daily Show where he talks about the difficulties of being a Republican punk/walking contradiction.
Bonus cameo by The Lawrence Arms’ Brendan Kelly for some reason.
