Mike Watt + the Missingmen Shove Off

Watt books counter-clockwise in Spring

Watt and the guys “shoved off” for their big tour of 51 cities in 52 days today with a show in Santa Barbara.

According to the watt from his hootpage, “my third opera “hyphenated-man” is out now on my own clenchedwrench label. the japanese release was through parabolica back on october 6, 2010 and a week later me and my missingmen (tom watson on guitar + raul morales on drums) supported it w/our “hyphenated-man in japan 2010″ tour where we preformed it at fifteen of the twentytwo gigs there. we’ve done it twice since then, in west l.a. and england. time now to work the piece fiftyone times in fiftytwo days both in our home land and canada – can’t wait! joining us for ten of the dates (march 16 -25) are our good buddies from tokyo, lite and they’ll be playing some new tunes they’ve just cooked up – yatta!”

The tour will be documented by a project funded on a web site, and Watt has increased his social media presence by starting a Facebook page. As one of the most inspiring artists to creative, intellectual people, I’m excited to see Watt harnessing these tools to document and promote his work. It will go a long way!
