Featuring Spike Slawson (Uke-Hunt), Joey Cape (Lagwagon), Dave Raun (Lagwagon), Jay Bentley (Bad Religion), Chris Cheney (The Living End)
Get your party shirts ready, boys and girls! Punk rock super-group and cover band extraordinaire, Me First And The Gimme Gimmes are set to return to our shores this October!
For the uninitiated, Me First And The Gimme Gimmes are a punk rock all-star team, consisting of Lagwagon frontman Joey Cape on rhythm guitar, Australian rock legend, Chris Cheney of The Living End on lead guitar, Lagwagon drummer and Fat Wreck utility superhero Dave Raun on the skins, with bass duties occupied by Bad Religion’s Jay Bentley, and rounded out by Uke-Hunt’s incomparable crooner Spike Slawson. Together, Me First And The Gimme Gimmes—an outfit that has always operated more like a beer-hall Pussycat Dolls than a regular mortal band—contain so much hot air, so much pomp, so much attitude, that it’s a wonder that these guys can still manage to pull their five individual tour buses into the same parking lot, put their differences aside and belt out the ballads without clawing each other’s eyes out. But they do, for the love of the fans, the music, and of course, the applause.
