So what's going on next?
Well, we've got Jello Biafra from the DKs coming into town next week. If you don't know who Jello is, it's safe to say some band you idolize considers him one of their major influences. I've known him for awhile and I'm psyched he's back in town and we are going to have hella fun!
The Mystic Krewe's PinChurch has been rented out for the members of a super-group of bands to practice for a big show that's happening in New Orleans at Siberia on March 2nd. A few years ago, on a dare, Jello agreed to participate in a pick-up-band consisting of various players from other groups in the region and create a fun retro R&B group + Jello's unique punk-rock-sensibilities. The end result of Jello Biafra and the New Orleans Raunch & Soul All-Stars, including musicians from bands including: Cowboy Mouth, Dash Rip Rock, Mojo Nixon, Down, Supergroup, and Egg Yolk Jubilee Horns.
For those who aren't familiar, Jello is a huge punk rock icon... He's on par with the Ramones, Sex Pistols and Iggy Pop.
Here are the guys from System of a Down and Foo Fighters covering Jello's music:
In the tech community Jello is considered one of the avatars of the freedom-of-information movement:
Here is a show he did a few years back that I helped produce:
The two weeks before Mardi Gras in New Orleans are going to be intense. Jello's bringing his crew into town and will be taking over our "PinChurch"... we are trying to set up a private party in the space at some point for interested peeps.
