Eugene Weekly : Calendar : 4.28.11





.This Week's Calendar | Galleries | Music @ the Clubs

Deadline for Calendar and Art in the Galleries submissions are noon on Thursday, a week before the issue that covers your event. Send an e-mail with event, date, time, location and cost to attend to cal@eugeneweekly.com

You either know who Mike Watt is or you dont, and if you dont you should. Heres why: Watt ã along with the late, great D. Boon ã was co-founder of The Minutemen (featured in the awesome documentary We Jam Econo), a seminal Southern Cal punk band that, up until Boons tragic death in 1985, pushed the limits of hardcore by incorporating everything from jazz to pop, and wrapping it all in wonderfully melodic songs that usually came in under two minutes. Watt almost gave up playing after Boons death, but he was forced out of retirement by Sonic Youth, and has since played with everyone from Eddie Vedder, Frank Black and the Beastie Boys to Iggy Pop, Pete Yorn and American Idol Kelly Clarkson. One of the Grandfathers of Punk, Watt ã who calls his bass a "thudstaff” and his singing a "spiel” ã says hell continue recording albums until he cant do it anymore. His latest, Hyphenated-man, finds Watt jamming econo once again; in an album of 30 songs based on the paintings of Hieronymus Bosch, the longest one clocks in at 2:04 minutes. Mike Watt plays with Dan Jones & the Golden Motors at 9 pm Thursday, April 28, at Sam Bonds; $10.
