Real cool time guaranteed

Kim Gordon, J Mascis, Mike Watt, Mark Arm, Jennifer Herrema, Mario Rubalcaba and Don Fleming - the musical equivalent of a Fantasy Football line-up, essentially - playing Stooges covers together in tribute to the band's late Ron Asheton?! Oh to be in Ann Arbor on 17th July.

Relatedly, I wasn't aware that, as part of the fundraising efforts for a new home for Seattle radio station KEXP, Arm had performed Stooges covers with three of the city's most prominent musicians: Mike McCready (who was instrumental in organising the show), Barrett Martin and Duff McKagan. Again, what a line-up.
