...And F*ck You Too

IF DEAD KENNEDYS TOUR WITHOUT JELLO OR KLAUS, DO THEY STILL MAKE A SOUND?A couple months ago, I came across a concert listing online that the Dead Kennedys were playing a show in New York City. Fully aware of the band’s tumultuous and litigious history, as well as from my conversation with him earlier in the year, I knew that verbose, charismatic frontman Jello Biafra was not going to (be permitted to) participate. On that basis alone, I saw little reason beyond perverse curiosity to actually go see this any more than I’d want to see The New Cars. Now, according to esteemed Boston indie newspaper The Phoenix, bassist Klaus Flouride isn’t even participating. So it’s co-founder East Bay Ray, D.H. Peligro, and two guys nobody gives a crap about, banking on DK’s name recognition to con some kids and unawares into shelling out hard earned money for glorified karaoke.

Anyway, tour dates are below if you’re interested in being completely underwhelmed. I’ll stick with Jello’s current band, the Guantanamo School of Medicine, who happen to have some Western Canada shows coming up.
