NOFX released their book Hepatitis Bathtub and it’s currently a Best Seller believe it or not! I just started the book but it doesn’t disappoint in the debauchery department. The band are currently on a show/book signing tour and made their usual stop at Irving Plaza on Friday night. Mephiskapheles and Direct Hit opened the show; Mean Jeans ended their run of the tour the night before sadly.
...The band started things off with “60%” and then quickly went into “Dinosaurs Will Die.” Some of the highlights for me included “Seeing Double at the Triple Rock,” “The Brews,” “Stickin in My Eye,” and “Franco Un-American.” The band ended with a cover of Rancid’s “Radio” and even though I wanted to stay, I left before the encore started. They played a bunch of good stuff too like “Bob,” “Linoleum,” “Bottles to the Ground” and “Kill all the White Men.” It’s remarkable how fast this show sold out, and from what I can tell, no one is getting sick of NOFX after all these years. In fact, their fanbase keeps growing and is now multi-generational. That’s got to make everyone in the band either feel great or really old. Let’s hope they keep on doing what they are doing for as long as could…or how long their bodies can handle all the drugs and rocking out they do. [Bryan Kremkau for Read Junk]
Snot-punk staples NOFX brought their book and music tour to NYC on Friday (4/29) for a book event at Strand and a sold-out live show at Irving Plaza. As the review quoted above points out, their 28-song set included songs from all over their career, a Rancid cover, and more. Pictures from the show are in this post, and the setlist is below them.
