David Cotner at LA Weekly talks about tonight's concert at Safari Sam's: "George Tabb — venerable punk activist and Maximum Rock 'n' Roll columnist — has World Trade Center Syndrome... [he has] PKD (Polycystic Kidney Disease — translation: kidney calluses that create a kind of agony at which even Satan winces) as a result of him living near Ground Zero, and, to help defray the costs of his medical expenses, all ticket revenues tonight go toward that end. Mike Watt & the Missingmen open up, along with Money Mark, the Latin funk of OO Soul, the garage-psych stylings of Woolly Bandits, former Zappa guitarist Mike Keneally and others."
