More than 36 years after forming influential punk band Minutemen, Mike Watt is still driving the van. We mean that figuratively and literally, as footage from the Minutemen documentary We Jam Econo features Watt driving extensive sections of the band’s tour route. Long after the tragic death in 1985 of D. Boon, Minutemen’s charismatic guitarist and singer, Watt has managed to stay busier than most. Whether performing with Firehose, Dos, Banyan or the Stooges, Watt has inspired generations of musicians with his powerful yet playful fluid bass. The Secondmen comprise the original lineup of Watt, Pete Mazich and Jerry Trebotic, so expect some of the old songs along with Watt’s usual generous selection of material from across his career.
