Mike Watt + The Missingmen “2nd heepin’ helpin’ of 3rd Opera US Tour 2012”

mike watt's third opera 'hyphenated-man'

Back on May 2nd in New York City, Mike Watt came through with J Mascis and Murph from Dinosaur Jr, Thurston Moore and Steve Shelley from Sonic Youth, Kurt Vile, Sharon Van Etten and other guests graced the stage at Le Poisson Rouge with their presence and played Stooges songs all night in support of the Mike Watt book ‘On And Off Bass“. A great night of music was capped off with Mr. Watt himself tweeting me the names of other people that came on stage and helped me get my set list in order. How awesome is that?

 He also sat down for an interview and discussed a number of things about the book, his future and what not. He mentioned “The Hyphenated Man”, which he dubbed his third  “Punk Opera”, and how he would be coming back around our area. Well he wasn’t wrong, in a statement he explains:

” people, I wanna bring my third opera hyphenated-man” around the u.s. again cuz there’s some towns I missed last time. fuck, we’re a big land and of course I’m gonna still miss some towns but that don’t mean me, my bass and my missingmen (tom watson on guitar and raul morales on drums) ain’t gonna try to do what we can”

Below the Dates, you can watch the FULL Mike Watt interview from May 2nd at the aforementioned Le Poisson Rouge in NYC filmed by yours truly.  Now with the dates there are links to the venues websites and all that but there is also a link for you to print out a flyer for the show coming to your town  so you can, according to Watt “so you can put these where you think folks interested might be able to see it and be aware when we’re coming and where to we’re gonna work this piece this fall” but later adds “no pressure on anyone but if you’re so kind to do so”

Interview from May 2nd Filmed By Jay Porks:

Jay Porks here.. I like to go to shows and pass along the experiences to you in words, photos and videos. In my spare time I do Social Media for the Meat Puppets in addition to hosting a weekly podcast. Remember folks it\'s not all about the technicalities of the situation more than it is about what the situation brings to the technicalities... The Jay Porks Experience, take a stroll my shoes for a little while...
