Tedzig @ Fun Fun Fun Fest
Ted Leo

Speaking of Ted Leo, who just announced some shows.....

After some wondering and hinting, it actually happened... Glenn Danzig, who didn't have enough time to play his full Misfits set Friday night, showed up during Ted Leo's set at Fun Fun Fun Fest on Sunday! (sort of)

First Ted & the Pharmacists played their regular set, but it ended 10 minutes early and abruptly because Ted said he was cold (like Danzig was on Friday night). Ted quickly reappeared on stage though, but in a black wig complete with devil's lock, and full band including Andy Nelson (who was in town with both Ceremony and Paint it Black) on bass. Misfits (aka Misfits tribute band TV Casualty, 3/5th of them anyway) were in effect!

The tribute band played four Misfits tunes: "Where Eagles Dare," "Bullet," "Angelfuck", and "Skulls" which Tedzig preceded by saying he reads Facebook a lot and he knew some people at the fest really wanted to hear it. Check out the video of that one below.

TV Casualty, who have played live shows before, now also have a release (what perfect timing for all that to go down at the Austin Fest...)...

On October 31st, Matador [released] a charity 7" from Philadelphia's TV Casualty.

This is the first recorded document to be released by a collective made up of Brian Sokel (Franklin, AM/FM), Andy Nelson (Ceremony, Paint It Black), Atom Goren (Atom and His Package) & Chris Wilson (Ted Leo & the Pharmacists). Over the past few years the group has played out in and around Philly for different charitable events, assembling as The Ramones (with Rodney Anonymous), Black Flag (with Dan Yemin) and Minor Threat (with Mike McKee). Here, Ted Leo joins the band as Glen Danzig, in what else but their take on The Misfits (watch some past performances here)!

As part of Matador's famed ELO- catalogue series (confused? consult the discography), this blood-red 7" features covers of Children In Heat, Angelfuck, Teenagers From Mars, We Bite, Who Killed Marilyn, Some Kinda Hate. All proceeds collected on sales of this release will be donated on behalf of TV Casualty & Matador to The Attic Youth Center, Philadelphia's only LGBTQ Youth Center.

Nice job Ted, but this has got to be the best Danzig cover/parody ever.

Have to say I have a newfound respect for this guy. This is awesome in every sense of the word. Go Ted!

How was the B12 shot? I hope the doctor's advice was well received.

at least someone got to have fun with those songs.

Just like Elvis Presely made black music safe for whites, Ted Leo does the same with Danzig, making him more accesible to hipsters and the like. Some great community service.

^ except that Ted Leo actually did way better than Danzig could have

This just in: Hipsters prefer Ted Leo over Danzig.


I never would have guessed!

Ted Leo is a saint.

Ted played. Danzig played primadonna. Ted wins. Has nothing to do with hipsters, just people who like performers who actually care about their fans.

Um, i've been a fan of the Misfits since I was 14 (i'm 28) and I prefer Ted Leo after this. I'm not a hipster.

As predictable as the sun rising every day. Go figure.
