Bassist Mike Watt to play Birthday Shows this Weekend

Seminal art punk bassist Mike Watt will celebrate his 56th birthday tonight with a show at DiPiazza’s in Long Beach, CA at 10pm. The event will be a special one for Watt—who has played with Iggy and the Stooges for the past ten years—because both his mid-seventies band The Minutemen and his later band The Secondmen will perform with him on stage at the same time. Continuing a big weekend for Watt, he and his Secondmen will put on a free show Saturday night at Café Nela in Cypress Park, CA.

Additionally, Watt has contributed a solo bass cover of “The First Noel” to the limited edition Christmas compilation, Comfort and Joy, proceeds from which will go towards providing resources for homeless youth.
