Mike Watt's new book
Mike Watt Book

Hellride East (Murph, Mascis & Watt)
Hellride East

Happening at Le Poisson Rouge in NYC:

On Wednesday, May 2nd, 7 p.m., Three Rooms Press presents the NYC book launch for Mike Watt: On and Off Bass at Le Poisson Rouge. The event will feature live performances by Mike Watt + J Mascis + Murph, with opening acts Appomattox and Dead Trend, plus a reading & signing by Mike Watt along with additional very special surprise guests. The new book will be available for purchase at the event.

This is a general admission, standing event. Happy hour from 7-8pm including $3 beer and $5 well drinks.

Tickets are on sale. As you can see in the above picture, it won't be the first time the three greats formed a band. In July 2000 Hellride East, as they call themselves, performed a set of Iggy Pop covers at Knitting Factory in NYC.

J Mascis recently played with Sharon Van Etten at SXSW where he also played with Murph. Check out a video of Dinosaur Jr. at Bar 96 in Austin, below.

Mike Watt's book of "photography, reflections and diary excerpts" will be available for preorder at Three Room Press soon. They write:

Order "Mike Watt: On and Off Bass" between April 1 and April 30 and receive a copy of the book signed by Mike Watt PLUS an 8 x 10 photographic print of an image used in the book, also signed by Mike Watt. NOTE: Pre-orders will be available beginning April 1 through April 30 only. The link to the preorder will be available at threeroomspress.com at 10 am (EST) on April 1. Pre-order quantity is extremely limited, and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Mike will also be on the road soon with fIREHOSE who are releasing "their first major collection ever", "lowFLOWs": the Columbia anthology ('91 - '93). Check out fIREHOSE's "Brave Captain" video (taped off MTV who wrote "Firehouse" on the video), below...

This will be attended by snobby upper middle class ivy league educated hipsters. If D Boone could only see that scene, there would be blood.

it would help if one of you guys could spell D Boon. Guess it is the lack of an ivy league education.

Proper spelling is so lame.

That's a weird picture of Mike Watt, if there ever was one.

Then again, Mike Watt has always been kind of a kooky persona, which isn't necessarily a bad thing.

yeah, i agree that proper spelling is so important in making an anonymous internet point. so glad we have you here to keep us on track, 11:22.

Really? This shows you haven't been to a Mike Watt show and you don't know about Mike Watt or D.Boons values.

I like people who write from the heart, about the usual stuff that sometimes cause some existential questions. Often we lose our mind in the details of daily living, and forget to focus on what matters most.
