Mike Watt’s 56th Birthday Week

Mike Watt turns 56 this Friday, and he has quite a week lined up for those in the Los Angeles area!

Tonight at The Mint, Watt will be joined by Stephen Perkins (Janes Addiction) and Peter Distefano (Porno for Pyros) for HELLRIDE, a set “melding real-o mind w/ coltrane using much respect and total freakouts”.  Check here for more info and tickets.

On Friday, Watt will celebrate his birthday with both his Secondmen and Missingmen, together (at the same time) at Di Piazza’s  in Long Beach, CA. The show starts at 10pm.

To cap off the week, Watt and his Secondmen will play a free show at Cafe Nela in Cyprus Park (NE LA) with Saccharine Trust and others.

If you’re in the SoCal area, make sure you get out to one (if not all) of these gigs and wish the man a happy birthday.
