NOFX recently revealed that they'll be performing 1992's White Trash, Two Heebs and a Bean in full (for the first time ever) on a livestream from Fat Mike's backyard, and that livestream has just gotten even more exciting.
In addition to NOFX, "Weekend At Fatty's - A One Night Three Day Weekend" will include Slightly Stoopid, Fishbone (who are back with almost all of their original lineup and working on a new album that Fat Mike's producing), Bad Cop/Bad Cop, and Get Dead, and then the flyer lists "more special guests" before naming Against Me!'s Laura Jane Grace, Avenged Sevenfold (?), comedians, graffiti artists, and "all night campfire stories."
UPDATE: Laura Jane Grace had to drop off. She writes:
Unfortunately I won’t actually be a part of the NOFX livestream this Saturday as advertised. I flew out to California this past weekend to film and the thought of being around people gave me a panic attack so I fled. Ran away without telling anyone and took a red eye home.
I was plugged into a PA for about 15 minutes for a soundcheck though and it was truly exhilarating to play amplified music. Makes me so sad to not be able to play shows.
I couldn’t handle it though, the pandemic and being around people at an “event” coupled with the LA air quality coupled with balancing sobriety. It was too much. I didn’t feel safe in a number of ways and just couldn’t hang.
Made me realize how much the past 6 months have really affected me psychologically and how if the pandemic is ever under control going back to “normal” won’t actually be a thing that just happens instantaneously.
It sounds like it's gonna be one hell of a one-night-three-day-weekend. It goes down September 19 at 5 PM ET (2 PM PT), and tickets are on sale. Flyer below.
Get Dead recently announced that their new album Dancing with the Curse is due October 9 via Fat Wreck Chords, and Fat Mike just spoke about producing that album to AltPress. "Producing Get Dead is like parenting a teenager," he said. "I set them up with a nice dinner, we sing songs around the piano and they sneak out after curfew to shoot PCP and fight walls with spray cans and fists. Somehow they make it home before school starts, but they’re bleeding from every orifice. I thought ‘Glitch’ represented this." Watch the new "Glitch" video below.
