THE MEATMEN Announce East Coast Tour October 2011
Black Fag and Youth Brigade on Select Dates
THE MEATMEN... The very sound of the name can send limp writed Emo simps diving for cover, and always lays a healthy butt hurt on the forces of good everywhere they play. Led by Drum Major in the Squadron of Doom; one Tesco Vee, The Dutch Hercules, the Lansing Liberace, this latest assemblage of Meatboys just finished a whirlwind tour of the West Coast where they laid the musical wood to 25 cities in 25 days, and endured every drug, undocumented alien, and produce checkpoint west of Texarcana.
At one particular "fruit check-point" the boys heard a commotion in the next lane... The shrieks of 'Search me Offither! I'm packing bananas!!" was overheard and alas another band of merry pranksters known as Black Fag 'An Absoultely Fabulous Tribute to Black Flag" were seen chasing the guards around the van demanding attention... and of course an instant bond was formed between these unlikely hardcore wack factories. Yes its true, LA's Black Fag has joined forces with the Meatboy showband and revue for 3 spectacular shows on The Meatmen's upcoming east Coast Extrava-gonzo of sin filled fun and frolic with stops in Boston, Long Island and Brooklyn.
And we are also pleased to announce the bands first foray into Florida in 15 years, the Meatmen will also be tag teaming it with long time LA hardcore stalwarts Youth Brigade in their Miami appearance! This East Coast auditory assault begins Oct 19 and runs thru Oct 30, and will be brimming with more props, confetti and gags than any a Rip Taylor or Gallagher show combined!
Catch The Meatmen and down a shot of old school Motor City Hardcore straight up in a dirty glass!
