  • Mike Watt's performance with the Missingmen at Paper Tiger is now free

In an old school punk spirit, or a case of sly promotional beneficence, Mike Watt's show at Paper Tiger is now free. Those who purchased pre-sale tickets will be refunded. Rejoice! That's called Lone Star money.

If you're not familiar with Watt's spot in the punk canon, here's a quick highlight reel. In 1980, Watt and the Minutemen signed to Greg Ginn's SST labels, producing some of the smartest punk to ever emerge from California. Minutemen's run came to a tragic end when pivotal guitarist died in a van accident just a year after their exceptional album Double Nickels on the Dime. Since the end of Minutemen, Watt has worked with fIREHOUSE and now plays bass in The Stooges.
