Mike Watt is a legendary and prolific bassist famous for his time in punk band Minutemen. He has been performing since 1980. Dude has chops.
The Go! Team w/Dom
Wednesday, April 13, 9:30 Club ($15), doors at 7 p.m.
This band has had its ups and downs with hype, displayed here by their low ticket fee. They sample. They rock. They rap. It’s still groovy. Turn up Be Your Own Pet and party like it’s 2007. The Go! Team’s “Huddle Formation” was used in a Honda ad. I have a friend named Dominick who people called “Dom” for short.
Tuesday, April 19, 9:30 Club ($20), doors at 7 p.m.
Mogwai is a rock band from Scotland. They play some fast songs, and they play some slow songs. Errors are not from Los Angeles, but Scotland, and are on the record label that Mogwai operates.
