TONIGHT: OV + Dirty Laundry Present Mike Watt and the Missingmen

Thought you'd have a quiet Friday tonight? Maybe go to bed early, get some rest? Well you're wrong because OV + Dirty Laundry are presenting another kickass show at Casey's Irish Pub in DTLA tonight! This week's edition of Filthy Fridays is headlined by the legendary Mike Watt & his Missingmen!

Co-founder and bassist of punk godfathers Minutemen and fIREHOSE, Mike Watt's music has been a huge influence on thousands of bands and listeners. But just like those bands, Mike has never been satisfied sitting still and so he's been touring relentlessly with his new group The Missingmen, bringing his punk music vision to smaller bars and clubs across the U.S. His most recent album, Hyphenated Man, is evidence of this constant movement, flying between trad-punk and more experimental punk sounds with ease. We've always been huge fans of his work and we jumped at the opportunity to co-present his music at such an intimate venue.

What's even better is OV faves Gothic Tropic and Avi Buffalo will be opening! Sounds like you're gonna need to get out of bed and get to Casey's right at 9PM! Cant get your lazy bum up? Give a listen to Minutemen classic "This Ain't No Picnic" below and we'll see you tonight!
