Minutemen's Mike Watt Planning an April Stop in Boise

Posted By on Fri, Jan 28, 2011 at 2:00 PM

The rapid, jazzy punk of the Minutemen captivated discerning critics and college students all throughout the early '80s, until D. Boon's untimely death truncated the band's career.

The Minutemen released several albums and turned many heads in that short time. Bassist Mike Watt was a member of fIREHOSE in the following years, and eventually went on to continue to chart new territory during his long solo career, which continues today.

On Sunday, April 24, Watt will perform at the Neurolux with his band the Missingmen. His new album, Hyphenated-Man (Clenchedwrench), is his first release since 2004's The Secondman's Middle Stand.
