Jesse Malin, Lunachicks, Ben Stiller’s band & many more played Howie Pyro tribute (pics)
Jesse Malin did his annual holiday show at NYC's Bowery Ballroom on Saturday (12/11), and this one was a benefit for his former D Generation bandmate Howie Pyro, who's been fighting for his life (you can help out by donating to his GoFundMe). The guest-filled show included Lunachicks, Ben Stiller's '80s post-punk band Capital Punishment, L7's Suzi Gardner, Lenny Kaye (Patti Smith Group), Murphy's Law, Tommy Stinson (The Replacements), Shilpa Ray, The Toilet Boys, Scream's Pete Stahl & Skeeter Thompson, Robert Gordon, Leah Hennessey, Tish & Snooky (Sic Fucks), Diane & the Gentle Men, Tom Clark, Sam Hariss (The Sweet Things), Bob Bert (Sonic Youth, Pussy Galore), Heather Litteer, Jesse's D Generation bandmate Richard Bacchus, and more, and Jonathan Toubin was the DJ for the night.
Jesse and his band played a full set, and there were various collaborations and covers with musicians backed by two different house bands throughout the night, and all the performers spoke about what Howie means to them. Jayne County also sent in a video which was played to the crowd.
