05/07/09: Jello & his new band play SATURDAY!
Jello Biafra is now immersed in creating an all new music album with his new band, the same one that electrified the Biafra 5-0 celebration last year:
Billy Gould (Faith No More)
Ralph Spight (ex-Victim's Family, Freak Accident)
John Weiss (ex-Sharkbait, Horsey)
plus additional guitarist Kimo Ball (ex-Freak Accident & Mol Triffid)
[The band's still arguing over the name- it is NOT Jello Biafra And The Dick Army! Jello's current favorite is Gitmo Twinkie.]
The band's playing a last minute hit and run show @ Annie's Social Club in San Francisco this Saturday May 9th!
It's going to be a short-to-medium length set so that Billy's arms don't fall off after stacking this project on top of intensive rehersals for the reformed Faith No More. Speaking of Faith No More, this is probably Billy's last live appearance with Jello's band because FNM is going on tour!
Also on the bill are local punk rock legends Social Unrest & Ribzy, plus newcomers Fix My Head and The Excuse! Don't forget back room Punk Rock & Schlock Karaoke! 21+, $10
