Wayne Kramer and Jesse Malin @ Bowery Electric, 2/7/2012
Wayne Kramer

Wayne Kramer was in NYC for the kickoff of new PBS series Lifecasters (one of the segments was about him and his wife) and he played a few songs at the premiere event at Lincoln Center on Wednesday (2/6). He stuck around the next day for a show at Bowery Electric, which was his first solo club show in NYC in 10 years. Jeremy Piven, who hosted the Lincoln Center screening, sat in on drums for The Clash's "Jail Guitar Doors" (which was written about Kramer and is the name of his nonprofit org), and the MC5 singer brought out Bowery Electric co-owner Jesse Malin to sing on it as well. For the encore, The Dictator's Handsome Dick Manitoba came out for the encore to help Kramer on the MC5 classic, "Kick Out the Jams."

More pics from the show, as well as the setlist and video of a few songs, are below.

ps: I just watched the PBS film and it's really moving, especially Wayne's segment. It renewed some hope in the human race.

You know what restores my faith in the human race? Whenever a convicted cop killer gets executed by the state. That shit just makes my whole week.

One time I saw Malin at Mamouns, it was pretty late and he was really drunk, and at one point I think I saw him dipping his hat into the hummus platter like it was a pita triangle.
