Mike Watt & Friends 05/02/2012
Le Poisson Rouge -New York City
Words/Photos By Jay PorksThe Meat Puppets back in November tear the roof off this place. Small venue, and I arrived first on line as usual, about 6 with Doors at 7, Show at 8. Spotted J Mascis outside around 6:30. This night could get interesting..So let's kick off the 68th Episode of the Jay Porks Never Ending Concert Series, I promise you this is a good one! Sharon Von Etten In a night of uncertainty at first, rocking out throughout the evening over everything, was the man who was on Bass, and that's Watt From Pedro (his twitter is @wattfrompedro ). The bass lines were prevalent everywhere. Every time JM took his foot off a pedal you hear that funky bass riff bouncing all over the place.
