Additional Information

Mike Watt got his musical start thumping the bass with legendary San Pedro punk trio,
The Minutemen in 1980 and over the years, he's toured with his own groups, including Dos,
fIREHOSE, The Black Gang, The Secondmen, The Missingmen, and others, and he has worked
bass as a sideman for Porno for Pyros, J Mascis and the Fog, as well as punk godfather Iggy
Pop and The Stooges. In Mike Watt: On and Off Bass, tour diaries are distilled to their econo
essence, and are juxtaposed with his photography from his home bass in San Pedro. Watt’s
photos are exquisite and his writing is insightful, funny, and brutally honest, as he explores topics
like John Coltrane, drunk female fans, his first performance with Iggy Pop, and lots more.

On Wednesday, May 2nd, 7 p.m., Three Rooms Press presents the NYC book launch for
Mike Watt: On and Off Bass at Le Poisson Rouge. The event will feature live performances by
Mike Watt + J Mascis + Murph, with opening acts Appomattox and Dead Trend, plus a reading
& signing by Mike Watt along with additional very special surprise guests. The new book will be
available for purchase at the event.
