MC5 Kick out the Jams @ Northsix


One day before their Central Park Summerstage performance (w/ Sun Ra Arkestra & DJ Spooky) on July 30th, MC5 will stop @ Northsix in Brooklyn, NY to perform their groundbreaking album, Kick out the Jams, in its entirety. Gilby Clarke (Guns N’ Roses), Lisa Kekaula (BellRays, Basement Jaxx), and Mark Arm (Mudhoney) will be playing with DKT/MC5 (they changed their name from MC5 to DKT/MC5 since they don’t have all the original members I believe). Tickets are on sale.
The rest of their tour dates are in Europe (so far).

Last year MC5 released a DVD. You can stream their song “Sister Ann” @ Epitonic.

Although corporate censorship, label interference, and legal hassles combined to cripple the band’s hopes of mainstream notoriety, both their sound and their sensibility remain seminal influences on successive generations of artists.” …continued at
