50 Watts Happening
Tuesday triple threat: music, art and film (after the jump). Go out and get some culture on!
The reunited DKT / MC5 perform tonight at The Echo, featuring vocals by Evan Dando (Lemonheads), Mark Arm (Mudhoney) and Marshall Crenshaw. Mondo Generator, new band of Nick Olvieri (ex-Queens of the Stone Age), will be opening. Doors are at 7:30 PM (18+) and tickets are $20.00. This will probably sell out so buy your tickets now!
